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.
Here is a condensed list of some of my media appearances:
RedState, a conservative online news source, “Frederick Douglass Are Fighting To Win Hearts, Minds & The Masses” (August 4, 2013)
WorldNetDaily, “Democratic Party Lying Atbout Racist Roots” (April 7, 2013)
700 Club, “Frederick Douglass Republicans Woo Black Voters” ( October 7, 2010)
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 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, 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
