Hi, I’m KCarl Smith. I am the President and Founder of Frederick Douglass Republicans and author of best-selling book entitled, Frederick Douglass Republicans: The Movement to Re-Ignite America’s Passion for Liberty. I am also creator of the powerfully effective Frederick Douglass Republican Engagement Methodology. It’s a unique messaging concept that embraces the four life-empowering values of Douglass and employs the diversity engagement strategy of Apostle Paul.

My Message

For years, I have called myself a Frederick Douglass Republican. I have always been inspired by his writings. In fact, the Word of God changed life and the writings of Douglass changed my thinking. My quest is to re-ignite America’s passion for liberty. In order to do so, I’m of the strong opinion that we must make Frederick Douglass an integral part of the liberty message. To that end, I write on such topics as diversity engagement, liberty, entrpreneurship and value voting.

Your message is just what America needs. I’m proud to be a Frederick Douglass Republican. I don’t have a lot of money, but I do have the willingness to spread the word. Let me know what I can do. Thank you!Bill McKinney

My Biography

I was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, the second oldest of four children—all boys. Raised in a Christian household, my parents taught my brothers and I the importance of strong values, hard work and to pursue the American Dream.

After high school, I attended Alabama A&M University. During my sophomore year, I was awarded a two-year ROTC scholarship. Upon my graduation in 1980, I was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army, ultimately rising to the rank of Major. I served 16 years on active duty in the Adjutant General Corps and I completing both the Airborne and Air Assault Courses.

I’m a best-selling author. My book is called Frederick Douglass Republicans: The Movement to Re-Ignite America’s Passion for Liberty. Along with the book, I wrote a very popular and practical companion guide entitled, Most Asked Challenges—helps conservatives to fine tune their diversity engagement skills.

I currently reside in the metro area of Birmingham, Alabama. I am the proud father of three fantastic children and six charming grandchildren.
