The Black Blogger Presents The North Star Anniversary Date December 3, 1847

On December 3, 1847, Frederick Douglass and Martin Delany published the very first volume of The North Star during a period of time in the United States when 95% of Americans of African descent were held in the bonds of a savage system of slavery. When our ancestors were counted as 3/5 of human and carried no more value than chattel. The Black Blogger understands the importance of this initial volume because it was historically important for our ancestors to tell their story of oppression. Today, I read from Frederick Douglass's writing that appeared in Volume One of The North Star as well as reading the poem North Star.
