Plaque a fit­ting trib­ute

Daily Record - - NEWS -

I WAS de­lighted to see that His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land will un­veil a plaque in hon­our of Fred­er­ick Dou­glass, the first black fig­ure recog­nised by the Com­mem­o­ra­tive Plaque Scheme.

The plaque will be un­veiled at a cer­e­mony in Novem­ber at Gil­more Place in Ed­in­burgh, the ad­dress at which Dou­glass once lived while act­ing as Scot­land’s anti-slav­ery agent.

It is highly fit­ting the role that Dou­glass – who played such a ma­jor part in the abo­li­tion­ist move­ment – should be marked in such an ap­pro­pri­ate man­ner. Alex Orr, Ed­in­burgh
