BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH



FREDERICK DOUGLASS

On February 14, we commemorate the birthday of Frederick Douglass who was born in Maryland in 1817. He died in 1895. He was a slave who later obtained his freedom. He was a noted author and orator on the issue of abolition. He founded a newspaper called "THE NORTH STAR." The Frederick Douglass home, located in Anacostia (SouthEast Washington) is a national landmark and tourist attraction.


TONI MORRISON


Our present day role model is Toni Morrison. Toni Morrison was born on February 18, 1931 in Lorain, Ohio. She has become one of the most celebrated modern novelists of the 20th century. In 1978, she won the National Books Critics Award for “Song of Solomon”. In 1988 she also won the Fiction Pulitzer Prize for “Beloved”. In 1996, she was awarded a medal by The National Book Foundation for her contribution to American Letters.
