Re: “Rochester organizations come together for Year of Douglass

That statue needs to be placed on the corner of State & Main Street downtown, where Frederick Douglass would stand daily, handing out his papers to anyone who would accept, and talk about his efforts to those working downtown - which considering the times - is phenomenal in it's own right. There are photos of his home, and Federal Grants should be sought to pay to rebuilt the house to scale and put it on the Federal Registry. Block grants could help to rebuild the neighborhoods around his original home, and build areas of local historical significance in a "Freedom Trail" throughout Rochester and our surrounding communities to highlight and historically document the caliber and importance of Rochester's role in Civil Rights throughout the nation. Perhaps if our young people realize we have so much to be proud of, they may start to emulate those same inspirations for a future we can all be proud of.
