    From the archives: Frederick Douglass on the Republican Party
    Editor's note: We mark the beginning of Black History Month with a 1883 letter from Frederick Douglass on his loyalty to the Republican Party. The letter followed on the heels of Douglass' appearance at the National Convention of Colored Men in Louisville, where he gave a speech urging black men to stand up for their rights. A little more than a week after this letter appeared, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Civil Rights Act of 1875, paving the way for Jim Crow laws that would segregate the South for nearly another century. Our society — and our language — has radically changed since this piece first appeared. We have left Douglass' words in tact in the interest of historical accuracy.
