That was pretty smart of Ralph W. Emerson! Then again, his middle name was Waldo. Everyone named Waldo is smart.  We learned that from the “Little Rascals” and from the books about that guy in the striped shirt who is always hard to find.  You can find that piece of wisdom and plenty of other “life hacks” in books. Where can you find books? You guessed it! Here at your friendly neighborhood library!


Frederick Douglass may have been the most influential African-American of the 19th century.  He was born in slavery in February 1818 and endured all of the hardships associated with the cruel institution.  He managed to teach himself and other slaves to read and ultimately escaped from Southern slavery in a daring twenty-four trek to New York.  He became a crusading abolitionist and worked as a social reformer and minister. He published three versions of his stirring autobiography and inspired his readers by his courage and his passionate defense of the rights of all people. He famously said, “I would unite with anybody to do right and nobody to do wrong.” He published the North Star an abolitionist newspaper. He met and reconciled with his dying former owner Thomas Auld in 1877. Douglass ceaselessly agitated for universal suffrage and vigorously supported women’s rights  He died on February 20, 1895.
