Douglass Community Center

From his 1841 speech at a Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society convention, until 1895 when he died suddenly at his Cedar Hill home in Washington, D.C., Frederick Douglass championed human rights. This memorial grove of scarlet oaks represent the District of Columbia, and honors where Frederick Douglass lived his last days.

"The general sentiment of mankind is that a man who will not fight for himself when he has the means of doing so, is not worth being fought for by others, and this sentiment is just. For a man who does not value freedom for himself will never value it for others, or put himself to any inconvenience to gain it for others."

(1857) Frederick Douglass, "If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress", Speech delivered at the twenty-third anniversary of West India Emancipation at Canandaigua, New York
