Frederick Douglass

This poster is a digitized reissue of a Northland Poster Collective RLM screenprint, featuring a portrait and two quotations of Frederick Douglass. Douglass (1818-1895) was an abolitionist, intellectual and activist whom Ricardo likes to call “the most influential blogger of the 19th Century.”

“We are not fighting for the dead past, but for the living present and the glorious future.”

“If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation… want crops without plowing up the ground. they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one or it  may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”

The poster is printed with red and dark brown ink on cream-colored feltweave-style stock.
