Spring of 2011 marks the 150th Anniversary of the Dismantling of Slavery. I refer to the 3 men--who were the Rosa Parks of their day. Frank Baker, Shephard Mallory and James Townsend. These men who are not widely known---made a simple mark in history. They walked onto Ft. Monroe and asked for refuge., refusing further enslavement.
One small step for men.........and a giant leap for Freedom!
This video is shared in honor of those three men--Baker, Townsend and Mallory!
Ft. Monroe: Freedom's Fortress
