Here is your Black History Month Fact for the day: Did you know: on this day, the son of a slave woman and an unknown white man, “Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey” was born in February of 1818 on Maryland’s eastern shore. Frederick Douglass was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman.

This fact has been brought to you by your Rufus King BSU.
