• “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.” ~Frederick Douglass (1818-1895)

  • “I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief. If the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!” ~Frederick Douglass (abolitionist leader and escaped former slave in speech before the Massachusetts Antislavery Society entitled “What the Black Man Wants.” April 1865)
