Host Todd Corley sits down with Kenneth B. Morris, Jr., Co-Founder & President, The Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives.
Ken, a direct descendant of Frederick Douglass, The Great Abolitionist, and Booker T. Washington, the famed educator and founder of Tuskegee Institute, shares insights about how the past can help us inform the future.
Considering the years of enslavement and denial of basic human rights, Ken sheds light on how Frederick Douglass focused on critical thinking, the power of his words and the technology of his day, to demand his liberation and equality.
A theme that runs throughout the podcast is how a teenage version of his ancestors, Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington, would approach today's call for change.
