Words Change the World

Frederick Douglass – prominent abolitionist, author, and orator – was born into slavery.  He used words to change the world, saying, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress … The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both … Power concedes nothing without a demand.  It never did and it never will.”
