His body was free, but his spirit never quite was because of the racists, intolerant, narrow-minded people out there taking away his rights. As Douglass once said “If there is no struggle, there is no progress”. I believe this quote explains so much of what he believes in and how hard he is willing to fight for it because he never gave in to the
