The Frederick Douglass Foundation, like Frederick Douglass sought while he was alive, seeks to address the “Black Genocide” that has ravaged the black population of our country. While many want to focus on isolated racially motivated incidents, we believe the issue is much bigger. That black mothers are aborting as many babies as are actually being born is only one of the most obvious problems. There are issues that have not gotten much attention, and we would like to address them. These are some of the most pressing issues facing our communities. For example, there is a huge percentage of black men who have been incarcerated, institutionalized or who are in jail at present. What makes this worse, according to a study at the sociology department at Vanderbilt University, the life expectancy of a black man in prison is higher than that of a black man not in prison http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20879679. The number of blacks that drop out of school is astronomical, and that only serves to perpetuate a life of crime and the high unemployment rate of blacks vs. whites. Of course drug additions, children being born out of wedlock, homosexuality, fatherlessness, single-parent homes and other factors continue to plague black Americans as well. Each one of these crises in the black community has a devastating effect, and collectively they are leading toward the eradication of blacks in this country entirely. The black population is actually in depopulation in this country at present.

Celebrating the 150 Anniversary of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation
If you have not become a member of the Frederick Douglass Foundation yet or need to re-new your membership NOW, is the time!
In July 1862, President Lincoln read his “preliminary proclamation” to his Cabinet, then decided to wait for a Union military victory to issue it. On September 22, 1862, following the victory at Antietam, he signed the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, formally alerting the Confederacy of his intention to free all persons held as slaves within the rebellious states. One hundred days later, with the Confederacy still in full rebellion, President Abraham Lincoln issued the final Emancipation Proclamation.
