Frederick Douglass served as Minister Resident/Consul General to Haiti from June 26, 1889 to November 14, 1889. He delivered a Speech on Haiti at the World’s Fair on January 2, 1893, following is an excerpt from that speech:
“We should not forget that the freedom you and I enjoy today,” he said, “is largely due to the brave stand taken by the black sons of Haiti ninety years ago . . . striking for their freedom, they struck for the freedom of every black man in the world.”
