Frederick Douglass

Three Boxes

Friday Nov 15, 1867
Pennsylvania, U.S.

In a speech delivered on November 15, 1867, Douglass said: "A man's rights rest in three boxes. The ballot box, jury box and the cartridge box. Let no man be kept from the ballot box because of his color. Let no woman be kept from the ballot box because of her sex".
