Today, I was proud to witness Congress install a permanent tribute to a great American and great son of Maryland, Frederick Douglass. The ceremony is an important step toward achieving the recognition that District of Columbia residents are due, and I thank Congresswoman Norton for her efforts that made this recognition possible. When Members of Congress, foreign dignitaries, and visitors from across our land pass by his statue, may they be inspired by his words, his life, and work – as we work together to continue moving our country ever forward toward greater equality and justice for all.
