CBC Members Share Their Black History Inspirations
Rep. Hank Johnson (Georgia)
Frederick Douglass is a man who helped profoundly change America from a nation that once enslaved its people to one that continues to advance toward justice, equality, freedom and fairness for all its people. His sage advice to agitate at every turn continues to inspire great men and women into action, and with each passing generation the march toward freedom and equal opportunity is moving closer to full realization.
