Joe Biden Claims He Talked to the Doctor Who Invented Insulin
"Hey, media. Why don't you cover Biden claiming he talked to the guy who invented insulin? Here's cut 13 listened to Joe Biden talking about insulin and the guy who invented it who just for the record died a year before Biden was born. How many of you know somebody with diabetes? These insulin. Well, guess what? And when Debbie and I pass this law, it included everybody, not just seniors. And so what happened was we said, okay, and how much you cost to make that insulin drug for diabetes? Of course. It was invented by a man who did not patent it because he wanted it available for everyone. I spoke to him, okay? I spoke to him, okay? He says that. I spoke to the guy. I spoke to him. He died in 1942. You think you're speaking at? Do you speak to him recently? This week? This morning when? When did you talk to, when did you have your conversation with the Doctor Who invented insulin? Doctor Frederick banting died in 1941.

Michael Wilkerson: Slavery Defined Who We Would Become as a Nation
"Our two in my conversation with my friend Michael wilkerson, the book, really an amazing book. It's called why America matters. Okay, so Michael, we left off talking about the issue of slavery. And you write really extensively about that battle in our history, because a lot of times we get the short version of it. To me, this was the foundational challenge. This was the question that was going to define who would we become as a nation. Slavery was an aberration. It was inimical to the ideals articulated in the declaration in the constitution. And yet we allowed it to live. There was a belief that, oh, it'll just go away on its own. Later in following the signing of the declaration, a lot of the signatories and others really begin to rally around resistance to the idea of slavery. But we were in conflict because half of the nation in the south were very much wedded to it from their economic and cultural social life. John Quincy Adams, after he left The White House for the next three decades in the House of Representatives, haranguing about the issue of slavery, Benjamin Franklin, in his last decade, really devoted himself to abolitionist causes. The rise of the abolitionist movements in the 1830s through 50 60s really were a catalyst to begin to awaken public consciousness at a broader level to the evil that was the institution of slavery. The most fascinating person that I found in this whole period of history was Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was an escaped slave who, in his youth, had taught himself to read, taught him itself, got all kinds of books whenever he could. Eventually escape to the north. And long story short became a leading abolitionist, a leading voice, a friend of president Lincoln. And in my view was the most prophetic voice speaking to the conscious of America saying, this thing is evil and it has to be destroyed. And

Larry Elder and Sebastian Discusses the Rare Footage in 'Uncle Tom 2'
"Really kind of punched me in the gut with this movie is just the first four minutes just the footage that your guys found black families in the 30 40s and 50s, just the opulence, the prosperity, the elegance, the self confidence oozing out of two dimensional pictures and black and white, home movies, and look, I'm a white dude who's an immigrant to America. I was pissed of what's happened to that community in America. How did you guys just find that footage? Well, it was the director, Justin Malone, who's just an brilliant director. And our composer's name is Damon Chris well. He scored both movies. And again, it gave you kind of the atmosphere of the whole thing. But you're quite right. Even after black's emerged from slavery, when we were talking about lynchings and KKK and Jim Crow, black people still kept moving forward. Why? Strong nuclear intact family. It was rare for a black kid to be born into a world without his father married to the mother. A strong belief in patriotism, believe it or not, you read the speeches by people like Frederick Douglas Booker T. Washington, the riddled with praise for American values. Judeo Christian values and a belief in entrepreneurship. And Uncle Tom two talks about what's happened. How did the righteous civil rights movement get hijacked by these leftists, Democrats, socialists, collectivists, and marxists who want to dethrone God, marks, of course, was an atheist and on the website a Black Lives Matter. We talk a lot about Black Lives Matter and Uncle Tom too. They attack the nuclear family and Karl Marx hated capitalism, let alone entrepreneurship, so the very things that made black people and able to endure in the face of horrific obstacles. God, family, American values, and entrepreneurship are all under attack right now by people like Barack Obama who said America has racism in its DNA.
Larry Elder Joins Trish to Discuss Racial Inequality
"Larry, good to have you here. Chris say hello to the black face of white supremacy. As I was called by the LA time when I ran for governor by a columnist who the bank email was initials are Erica D Smith, oops. Yeah. Look, I know that what you're doing comes from a very good place. And I know that in part just because I know you, but also you've really over the years, pointed out the policy flaws that I think have left so many black Americans disenfranchised. This new movie, and by the way, I say this is actually a sequel to the uncle the original Uncle Tom that you wrote. But this is the second one. And you get into some of these things. People ought to know, there was a lot of success was there not within the African American community long before the war on poverty in the 1960s in my estimation really destroyed so much of it. Absolutely. And by the way, it's a collaborative effort. Both these films, the director is Justin Malone. He's absolutely brilliant. It was scored by an amazing composer, a named Damon Chris well and co written by the star chattel Jackson, a guy named rival writer Ansel and myself. So it's a collaborative effort. But you're absolutely right about the success of black America. The first one talks about post slavery. When you're talking about an environment with the Klan, lynchings, Jim Crow, still black people kept moving forward. Why? Basically four reasons. Reliance on family. Even during slavery, a black child was more likely to be born under a roof as biological mother and biological father than today. Reliance on American values. You look at speeches by people like Frederick Douglass and they're replete with references to patriotism and to American values, even though obviously America was not living up to those values when it came to black Americans.

Elon Musk's Deal With Twitter Goes Bust
"Kara, you are back. Again, you did such an amazing job the first time I said, y'all, I gotta have her back. We need to talk about what's going on with Elon Musk and Twitter. So apparently the news has come out. I'm looking at the article right now and say Elon Musk says he is terminating his deal to buy Twitter. Can you help my audience understand exactly what that means for Elon Musk and Twitter and what does that mean for the people when it comes to citizen citizenship censorship on social media platforms? Yeah, so this is crazy, right? It's been a roller coaster. It's been a total wild ride since Elon announced that he was going to try to take over Twitter. We've had our ups and downs, but right now, this seems to be the most definitive answer of the we haven't had a lot of good solid information until today. And it looks like this is going to be a battle that's bought in court. So what essentially Elon did today was say that Twitter is in material breach of contract because of bot. So they said that their platform was only composed of around 5% of spam box and Elon was like, I'm going to get someone like good really good data scientists and the analytical friends to look into that claim. And they found out in given the recent letter that Elon just sent to Twitter that it was impossible for them to determine the degree, the number of the percentage of bob's on this platform. So whether or not Elon was sort of jockeying for a discount, you'll remember that he offered to buy Twitter at 54 dollars and 20 cents a share, which is much higher than what it's trading today. I mean, since April, Twitter, according to The New York Times, is down about 24% in terms of shares. So it was never sort of a great fiduciary investment for Elon, but he did want to make it in his words a global platform for free speech. And the meltdown ensued and then finally the board gave in, and now it looks like Elon's going to walk away. He might pay the $1 billion walk away fee or he might get sued by Twitter to enforce Twitter has given indications that they're going to sue him. So we'll see what happens in court.
Will We Ever See Gas Prices Fall?
"Joe, we got cut off before the end of the segment. I want to continue the conversation and add a couple of things that I want you to address because you are obviously on fire with this and you're the expert and I don't feel like there's many people that's talking like this or giving clarity to what's going on in our country. So one of the things I wanted to address, let's see the most important thing I want to address is when can we see our gas prices going down? What has to happen that our gas prices begin to go down and is this something that Joe Biden can actually do, his administration to do to effect change yeah, well, great question well, over the last few weeks, we've actually seen oil prices come down by about 15%. We've seen prices drop from the record highs or near record highs of a $130 a barrel. They actually crashed through a $100 per barrel earlier this week, so oil prices are coming down. It's not because of these reserves being released. As we discussed before, prices actually continue to increase after those reserves are released, they're coming down because our economy is softening. We actually saw our economy shrink during the first three months of the year and the Federal Reserve is not estimating the economy once again shrank during the last three months. And this is leading the marketplace to believe we're going to see less demand for oil.
Biden Administration Sends Oil Reserves Overseas
"All right, Joel, I got two major things that I want to focus on that I want the audience to understand better. The first thing is is that could or did this administration send reserves overseas and they should have actually used those reserves for us to bring down gas prices. How did that situation work and also the rumors that the petroleum or the oil was sent to businesses or sent to China in relation to businesses that Hunter Biden had involved in. So the first one is, should we be concerned about the oil being sent overseas versus it being here right at home? Well, first off, let's recall what these reserves are actually in place for. We have these strategic petroleum reserves in order to help us get through a crunch, not of high prices, but to get through a crunch, let's say we had a hurricane or an attack on our infrastructure or a period of war, we couldn't actually get oil out of the ground and through the refineries. That's why we have the reserves in place. These reserves are not that there to help any party, whether it's Republicans or Democrats, lower gas prices or oil prices. That's number one. Second of all, the oil that was actually released in the reserves, it actually depleted those substantially, but it had a very minimal impact on price. If you look at prices, prices continued to increase even after that oil is released. And that's because as much as the president continued to talk about all the millions of barrels of oil that were going to be released, it was just a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of oil that we use in a given year. By that I mean, releasing 1 million barrels of oil a day for 6 months, it sounds like a lot of oil, but we're talking about 9 days worth of oil. And that's because we use anywhere from 14 to 18 million barrels a day in this
The Selfishness of Lia Thomas and Transgender Athletes
"How is it reasonable that you do not care about other women, although you want to be a woman? You want to fight for women, or whatever the case may be. It just tells me that you're a selfish person. And I don't want to hear anybody say, oh, you know, Leah Thomas said that she didn't do this for selfishness. Man, Lance Armstrong said he wasn't taking drugs. They do want two of the friends I don't know how many times. The reason I'm bringing it up because the Tour de France is going on right now. He wants with a friends I don't know how many times 5 6 times that's almost impossible to do. And then he beat everybody over the head and said he wasn't taking drugs. Everybody knew him and everybody on his team and every other top cyclist is probably doping. He just get dope better. And he just demolished the emotions of people who would challenge him and he knew the whole time he was cheating. Same thing with Lil Thomas. That man knows the whole time that he's just doing what he's doing and this is my opinion that he's doing what he is doing to win.
US Army Goes 'Woke'
"I want to talk about the army training requirements. And the army of the United States of America made the decision that they are going to require that if a person in the military is transgender, but has not actually had any surgeries, meaning they have a Wang Wang, that that person can decide what bathroom they're going to go in, or at least once they transition they have to go to the signed gender bathroom barracks. And shower, and everybody else in the military have to suck it up. And deal with it. I think that is the craziest thing I've ever heard. Why are we even talking about this in the military of the United States of America? Last time I checked the military was there to protect this country abroad. And they have services here in the United States of America, and if their goal is to protect domestic and foreign, I don't understand why there needs to be an articulation or a conversation about transitioning,
The Severe Terror Tactics Used by Pro-Choice Activists
"The protests outside the home of justice Kavanaugh continue. And while their peaceful protests, it's a little disturbing this idea that the left is able to show up at your house. You would think that there would be proper venues for these protests, but you wouldn't be able to come and harass someone where they live. And so you have this alarming scene of these sort of police officers with helmets and batons, and then all these protesters milling about them and shouting slogans and signs and so on. But that's not the worst of it. The worst of it is what the left is doing to these pregnancy centers. The pro life pregnancy centers around the country now life news, which is a pro life site, has documented 40 plus incidents of violence and vandalism directed at pro life individuals and organizations ever since the leak of the draft Supreme Court's decision. By the way, where is the leaker? How is it the case that you have this investigation and somehow you can't find the leaker who gave this information to the media? What? No. Let's look at these incidents because they are quite disturbing. Houston, early May, holy rosary Catholic Church vandalized on the pastor, faster Harris says most definitely it's a result of the leak that came out last week. So Catholic target but on by the pro abortion activists in early May, manassas, Virginia, vandals defaced a pro life pregnancy resource center, writing graffiti all over the building, abortion is a right, you people are liars, a whole bunch of incidents in Texas, early May Portland, Oregon, southeast Portland, pregnancy center. You can see the windows smashed as a photo here. There's the F word, debris everywhere. May 3rd, Frederick Maryland, the care net pregnancy center defaced with spray painted pro abortion messages that say pro abortion, go to PP, Planned Parenthood instead, abortion is a right. This is not a real clinic, and forced motherhood, and then one more example out of the 40, then I'll give you may 8th, Madison, Wisconsin. I left this so called anarchist group, attacks the Wisconsin family action office. They've tossed two molotov cocktails into the office after breaking windows, and then they set the office on fire.

"My God it makes you laugh to think someone like me could keep someone like you. Remember what I become fun fact Peter Dinklage and screenwriter Eric Schmidt are a couple. As are Hayley Bennett and the film's director, Joe Wright. Think of it as a romantic behind the scenes footnote to a movie that's unabashedly romantic and spirit. Wright's filmmaking has a pleasing old fashioned sumptuousness. Courtesy of production designer Sarah Greenwood and costume designers Massimo cantini parini and Jacqueline Duran, who are Oscar nominated for their dazzling work here. And as always, write controls the camera with fluid grace. Letting us see the actors and dancers moving through space. With none of the busy cutting you get in so many contemporary movie musicals. Bennett is a trained singer, and she delivers the movie's strongest musical performance. Her rock sand really comes to emotional life when she's called on to sing. Dinklage has musical experience, too. He was the frontman of a 90s puck band called wizzy. And he expresses cyrano's every longing, with a deep, soulful baritone. He's an inspired choice for the role. Like Tyrion Lannister, whom dinklage played to perfection on Game of Thrones, cyrano is always the smartest person in the room. Easy to underestimate, but hard to defeat in a battle of wits or weapons. But dinklage shows you the deep ache at cyrano's core. And makes you feel the sting of his unrequited love. Some purists may miss that big nose, but there's something about the lack of prosthetic enhancements that makes dinklage's performance all the more poignant. What you see on screen is all him. Nothing more and nothing less. That disarming sincerity applies to the movie as a whole. It's not always the most graceful retelling of this oft told tale, but it's hard not to admire rights conviction. And sometimes his crazy audacity. Only a truly committed director would have opted to shoot a climactic battle scene at 16,000 feet above sea level. On the side of Mount Etna, a live volcano. It's a showy flourish for sure. But also a fitting one for a story of such grand, operatic passion, Justin Chang is the film critic for the LA times. He reviewed cyrano, starring Peter Dinklage.

"But what modern conservatives have done is they plucked out pieces of rhetoric here and there and they've said, aha, you see, Douglas was not only a Republican. But he believed in individualism and self reliance and self help, which meant he didn't advocate for government assistance and so forth. I have to say, it's a terrible misuse and appropriation of Douglas because it ignores I would argue 80 or 90% of the rest of his ideas in the rest of his life. He was not anti government in the least. He believed an activist interventionist use of federal power to destroy slavery to destroy the confederacy and to reconceive the U.S. Constitution. But it's what we do with historical figures, but it's often a rather slippery misuse of the past. He did preach self reliance. There's no question about that, but you have to go back into that context and understand why. David by thanks so much for taking with us. My pleasure. Thanks for having me, Dave. Historian David blight recorded in 2018. His Pulitzer Prize winning book, Frederick Douglass, prophet of freedom, inspired a new HBO documentary about Douglas which premiered this week. It's titled Frederick Douglass in 5 speeches. Coming up, we remember physician and public health advocate Paul farmer, who died Monday. This is fresh air. Paul farmer, the physician and anthropologist known for his long-standing efforts to bring healthcare to some of the poorest people in the developing world, died Monday in Rwanda on the grounds of a hospital and university he helped establish. He was 62. Partners in health, the global organization he helped found said he died of an acute cardiac event. Farmer worked on public health projects in many countries, developing strategies for dealing with tuberculosis, HIV and Ebola, in addition to providing basic affordable care. When The New York Times contacted doctor Anthony Fauci about farmer's death, he wept in the interview, saying he and farmer had been like soul brothers. Farmer had long-standing ties to Haiti, where he founded a clinic decades ago that would grow into a network of 16 medical centers around the country. We have a short excerpt of my interview with farmer in 2011 after he'd been deeply involved in efforts.

"To my 2018 interview with blight. His book is Frederick Douglass, prophet of freedom. Frederick Douglass is known as a real champion of women's suffrage. I think he was the only male speaker at the Seneca falls meeting in 1848, right? Yes. He's the only male speaker. He wasn't the only male signer of the declaration of sentiments at sonic a falls, but he was the only black person even attending it. He embraced women's suffrage early, and often. And except he got into a big problem later. Well, that's what I wanted to get to. He befriended Elizabeth cady Stanton and in the end, they had a falling out. It was over principle, right? What happened? Well, we're competing principles, of course. When it came time for the Fifteenth Amendment, the voting rights amendment passed in 1869, Douglass had a terrible falling out, with Susan Anthony and Elizabeth cady Stanton, who were the and others, but they were the two great leaders of the women's suffrage movement, and the whole debate was essentially about whether women would be included. In the voting rights amendment, and they were not, and the reason, of course, was that everyone with one eye open knew that if you put women's suffrage into that amendment it never would have passed, first the Congress and certainly wouldn't have passed in the state legislatures. So Douglass took the position that as he put it, it was the black man's hour. And this was the one chance to get the right to vote for black men, and that for now women would have to once again wait. Well, Stanton and Anthony were had run out of patience. They weren't going to wait any longer, but the problem was they've pushed back and fought back with racist language. Terribly racist language against Douglas and against black men generally. And Douglass handled most of that as a gentleman with grace except he also threw about some rather stereotypical claims, for example, he said, well, educated women can still have their husbands voting and their husbands can vote their interest, which brings pretty badly on our ears today. But it was one of those moments when you had to make choices and he took the choice of favoring the Fifteenth Amendment because it got at least black male suffrage into the constitution. You know, he became committed to the Republican Party..

"Restfully. Drawing an audience in to some kind of situation, but nothing flamboyant about it. But then slowly, but surely working toward some kind of resolution, some kind of point, some kind of argument, some kind of moral message. And then sometimes in that last part of the speech, reaching these exuberant crescendos, that would just come out of him and shouts or in roars, people would say, he had that ability of performance. And he gained that by the simple power of repetition. But he had a performance of way of delivering his oratory that people just flocked to see. In fact, I say in the book at one point that seeing and hearing Douglas became through the course of the 19th century, a kind of American wonder of the world. If you came to America, you wanted to see Douglass speak if you could. It was that kind of an event. Douglas watched the crises over slavery build towards the Civil War, he was prepared to see a war in order to see slavery ended. What was his attitude towards Abraham Lincoln? Did they have a relationship? Douglas did have a relationship with Lincoln, but not until the war years. Doug was first became aware of Lincoln during the Lincoln Douglas debates. He followed in the newspapers and Douglas was even out in Illinois. During one or two of the debates. And we should note this is not Lincoln versus Frederick Douglass. No, no, no. Stephen Douglas. For the Senate race in 1858, he became intrigued with Lincoln then, of course, two years later, Lincoln runs for president. But their relationship was very testy. At first, Douglas was one of Lincoln's most ferocious critics in the first year or year and a half of the war because the war wasn't being made against slavery, and they were even trying to return fugitive slaves. So before they ever met Douglas had said some of the harshest things any critic of Lincoln had ever said. But things changed over the course of the war. They did. The Emancipation proclamation was probably critical there. It was absolutely critical into 1862, and Douglas was still hammering away at Lincoln at one point he called him the most powerful slave catcher in the country. But after the preliminary proclamation, September 62, and of course the final proclamation, January 63, Douglass's tune on Lincoln greatly changed. And then especially with the recruiting of black soldiers in the wake of the Emancipation proclamation and Douglas got deeply involved personally in recruiting members of the 54th Massachusetts regiment two of his own sons were members of that regiment. He slowly but surely changes his tune about Lincoln. He comes to see the war now as a crusade led by Lincoln and the Republicans to not only save the union, but do it by destroying slavery in everywhere he got a chance to say it he would say freedom to the slave is freedom to the nation. Freedom to the.

"And he then learns to preach from the text, which is, of course, the Protestant tradition, and it's there in that AME Zion church, as well as a couple public meetings where he gets discovered, so to speak, by the Massachusetts abolitionist to our disciples of William Lloyd garrison, and in the late summer of 1841 they invited this very young man he's 23 years old out to Nantucket to a big antislavery convention, and it was there in the athenaeum on Nantucket, where he gave his first speech to a room full of abolitionists, a room full of white people. And in essence, he got up and told some of his stories about his youth about being a slave, and he was a hit, a huge hit, and they hired him. To then go out on the road as an itinerant lecturer across New England at first, and eventually within a year or two, all across the northern states. He eventually becomes an establishes several newspapers and for the next 20 years becomes an activist. For abolition, he began with a pacifist as garrison was. How did Frederick Douglass's views about the means to abolish slavery? Evolve between then and the Civil War. Yes. That's a fascinating aspect of his life, because he undergoes a kind of ideological strategic even intellectual transformation, and the late 1840s, early 1850s. I think it's the first great transformation of his public life. He also had quite a breakdown in this period. He could barely make ends meet for his family. He is trying to be the self made man who could not provide. But he embraced, for example, things like the possible uses of violence. And that's in the wake one must know of the fugitive slave act, which radicalized a lot of people. The fugitive slave act of 1850 made everyone complicit with the returning fugitive slaves to their owners if they could be found. And by 1851, 1852, Douglas's writing editorials with lines such as, why do slave catchers fear having their throats cut? It's because they deserve to have them cut. He also embraced political parties vehemently. He came to see that if you don't attack the law, and you don't find a way to change the power at the base of slavery, you would never destroy it. So he's moving not only moving away from garrison. He's moving full force into the politics of antislavery. It's not going to be a smooth ride by any means through the 1850s. But by 51 and 52, he's become a thoroughgoing political abolitionist, believing in political parties, believing in political activism..

Frederick Douglas was born along a horseshoe bend in the tuckahoe river. On the eastern shore of Maryland, in 1818, it's a kind of a remote backwater at that point of the American slave society. It was born on the home hill farm, which was owned by his then master, Aaron Anthony, his mother. Was a still young woman named Harriet Bailey. He was probably born in his grandmother, Betsy Bailey's cabin, although we don't know for sure. And he never will know exactly who his father was, although one candidate is Aaron Antony himself, Douglas was always told that his father was his master, or one of his masters, so one of the facts of his youth that everyone should know is that he was in essence an orphan. He never knew his father. And he never saw his mother after the age of 6, and he had to practically invent images of her. He had very little memory of her, so as a child, he's essentially not altogether abandoned, but he's left without parents. And then he grows up. For 20 years, as a slave, about 11 of them on the eastern shore, and about 9 of those years in Baltimore, which, in fact, the city has everything to do with the fact that he would ever be able to escape. Right, in Baltimore, he lived among a lot of freed black men, right? And women. That's right. That's right. Baltimore was a great ocean port and a great shipbuilding city. And when in the year he escaped, 1838, Baltimore had about a 130,000 people. It was a big ocean port city. It only had about 3000 slaves, but it had about 17,000 free blacks. It was a very large, very active energetic free black community, and he grows up a midst of them as well, especially amidst them..

Working as consul. General of haiti. Frederick disagreed with america's decision to acquire important haiti and converted to a military station in eighteen. Ninety one this division. And course of action. 'cause frederick to have to resign from the position as he truly did not believe in the cause. Frederick would spend the final years of his life in dc where he continued to be committed to activism and political justice. Sadly frederick's wife passed away on august fourth. Eighteen eighty two from a stroke. Frederick would go on to marry his secretary and an almost unheard of mood. That would put him at odds with his family. This was nothing new. To frederick and he would not be phased to speak more on his previously mentioned accolade of being the most photograph man of the nineteenth century. This was due in large part his visibility in his community and promoting the image of an educated intelligent and established african american man. I would also be involved in african american educational institutions in the dc area. His most prominent appointment was on the board of trustees at howard. University frederick was on board of trustees with howard university from eighteen seventy one to eighteen ninety five interacting with inspiring other trailblazers. Such as i to be wills can hint frederick would collaborate with either on a few projects. All centered around preserving and furthering african american culture in history. Frederick douglass passed away on february twentieth. Eighteen ninety five just after his birthday. Frederick's wife then created the frederick douglass memorial and historical association to preserve his home in all its contents. Fredericks home in c. Called cedar hill be acquired by the national park service in nineteen sixty two. It was then established as the frederick douglass national historic site in nineteen eighty-eight. Fun fact black.

Our human rights advocate a husband and a father. Most importantly frederick was a man of action. Frederick lived a life that many of us could not even dream of enduring the suffering. But frederick didn't endure frederick overcame persevered and flourished. He went from being denied work on the shipyard to being invited back to the white house. He went from being illiterate to publishing multiple autobiographies newspapers and monthly publications. He went from being told he would amount to nothing to be. One of the most renowned statesman of his time frederick saw the status quo and thought. I'm going to change this. We can only hope to gain a modicum of the state leanness. That was frederick douglass..

"African americans were freed from slavery but still had much work to do to establish themselves in a society that did not want to welcome them. Frederick worked in various ways to help extend civil rights to newly freed. African americans in particular frederick supported several amendments further protecting and establish african americans such as suffrage and instituting the fourteenth amendment. To put it simply. Frederick was an advocate for human rights. It is not well known. I don't think that frederick attended the eighteen. Forty eight women's rights convention in new york and was coined. A women's rights advocate frederick truly believed in the concept that african americans should come together and political matters as there was strength in numbers due to the extreme racism and violence being perpetrated against african americans in southern states. Frederick also supported african americans moving to northern areas where they're at the very least tolerated though not wholly accepted it as equals in eighteen. Seventy two frederick would make his big move to washington dc. This is also where frederick would establish his final newspaper titled new national era unfortunately unlike his previous newspapers this one will collapse due to mismanagement just a couple years after it was published. Not to be confused. Though frederick had many other projects going on at the same time in eighteen seventy four frederick was named the president of friedman savings entrust sadly this too would collapse due to poor management within the bank. That frederick was not made aware of until much later the ramifications from the failed bank position did more to hurt fredericks reputation than anything something that he'd worked hard to build in the dc political network. Frederick was able to successfully repair his reputation in dc going on to receive multiple positions in government. Starting in eighteen.

"Would travel back to america in eighteen seven during his travels frederick was able to acquire financial support from those who believed in him and his noble causes fertig returned home truly free in immediately began work on yet another ambitious project. And what project was that. You may wonder frederick was born to create and publish his own newspaper with this goal in mind. Frederick created the north star. The north stars first issue was published on december third eighteen. Forty seven the northstar was a great success and ranch strong with excellent readership until eighteen. Fifty one it was at this time. That frederick decided to combine his paper with another famous anti-slavery publication in the area called the library party paper to ultimately form frederick douglas's paper. Yes you heard that correctly. The newly-formed newspaper was called quite simply frederick douglas's paper this alone demonstrates just how much brand recognition frederick had cultivated in this time that he was able to garner readers with a self-named newspaper. Frederick douglas paper was published until around eighteen sixty in tandem with another paper. Frederick was writing titled the douglas's monthly around. This time frederick was living in the area of rochester. New york this area fostered a thriving. Abolition is community as such frederick was exposed to differing opinions and strategies for eradicating slavery that more so resonated with his own ideals again in spite of the terrible violence perpetrated against frederick. He did not believe in using violence as a means of securing freedom. Frederick firmly believe a nonviolent course of action would be the answer and this principle underscored all of his beliefs previously with other abolitionist groups. Frederick supported the main core beliefs of these groups that the constitution was not to be considered a valid legal document as it supported the system of slavery. These anti-slavery groups also believed that participation in any american politics would be supporting the establishment of slavery and thus abstained from any in all political involvement after frederick was exposed to anti-slavery groups that advocated for abolitionist to become involved in politics. Everything changed frederick realized that this path more so mirrored his own beliefs and he began to share his opinions that encourage political action and intentional involvement. This marked the start of an extraordinary period. For frederick frederick had already begun his rise in american politics and most importantly helped to further the goal of abolishing slavery on a global scale while living in rochester. Fredericks home was used as a stop on the underground railroad. Consequently frederick was able to network and meet many abolitionists during this time period as such later on in eighteen..

Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds so thank you so much for joining me again. This is part. Two of the frederick douglass series in part one. We've followed frederick journey from an enslaved child who was carted from plantation to plantation to a renowned orator and statesman who spent his days educating the public on his experiences in order to abolish the very system that held him captive for so many years. Yes that was a mouthful. Where'd we'd left off exactly. Was that frederick. Have begun working for to abolitionists. Organizations called the american anti-slavery society as well as the massachusetts anti-slavery society fergie quiz engaged in a tense debate with his comrades challenging their call for violence with the need for nonviolence in furthering their agenda again voicing his opinion too much opposition within his camp. But if anyone was familiar with going against the grain it was frederick douglass during this time period. While frederick traveled in spoke about his life he began to realize that his audience doubted the authenticity of his stories. Although frederick had indeed been enslaved people would point out articulate in educated he was highlighting his other worldly public speaking skills saying that someone who was enslaved would never be able to speak in such a way. These characteristics were presented as evidence that fragile could have never lived. The life he'd claimed with that in mind frederick began important work just a few years after his great debate at the national convention of colored citizens in buffalo. New york frederick would publish his first. Autobiography fredericks autobiography titled narrative of the life of frederick douglass. An american slave written by himself was published in eighteen forty five. This book was revolutionary and groundbreaking for several reasons. The biggest one being that frederick. Road it himself. It also served as a way of providing concrete intangible evidence of frederick's previous years in enslavement further legitimizing. His cause and his background frederick also published this book with full knowledge that he would be exposing himself to the possibility of being recaptured by his previous owner. Because keep in mind at this time. Frederick was a fugitive slave in quotation marks. At this point. With all this in. Mind frederick stu went ahead and published his autobiography as he believed there was more strength to be shared in the message. Frederick would go on to publish two more autobiographies later on in life. Audience is everywhere from america to overseas were enraptured with frederick's book the books international success encouraged frederick to take his lecture campaign across the pond right after his book was published frederick. We spent a few years traveling around the uk giving his amazing speeches and lectures. Eventually frederick was able to garner enough attention and support that the public campaigns secure his freedom was created in the uk. This campaign was successful. And frederick was legally granted freedom from his previous owner who still pursued frederick ruthlessly especially after his growing successes with his freedom and international fame in tow frederick.

"The massachusetts area had a strong abolitionist movement. And frederick discovered an abolitionist. Newspaper called the liberator in eighteen. Forty one frederick decided to attend the massachusetts anti-slavery society convention while at the convention a gentleman by the name of william coffin invited frederick to speak to the attendees after having heard frederick stunning or tori skills in new bedford. Frederick speech was an absolute hit and he was promptly recruited to join the group. It can truly be said. That frederick wasn't abolitionist. His entire life but he began to travel and spent his time promoting after joining the massachusetts anti-slavery society as well as the american anti-slavery society. The belief of the american anti-slavery society was that slavery was a moral wrong. That should be eradicated through. Non-violent means in education frederick was particularly strong on promoting the nonviolent aspect of resisting slavery in eighteen forty. Three frederick attended the national convention of colored citizens in buffalo new york while they're another african. American abolitionist named henry highland garnet gave a speech with the central theme of slaves having a violent uprising against their owners. This was a controversial declaration and one that sparked a fierce debate. Between frederick and henry fergie made it clear that he did not support such a notion or any plan of action that insinuated or required violence consequently frederick strength in his beliefs. Put him at odds with those who looked just like him. Other african american abolitionists were very much in favor of the idea of an uprising. Putting frederick as the odd man out although his beliefs were not universally liked or accepted. This did not prevent frederick from being vocal about them. It's difficult to stand up for what you believe in but even more so when the people who are supposed to be your allies. Become your opposition. Frederick strength of character his unending curiosity and intelligence so much can be said for the fire. That was inside.
