Douglass and Lincoln at School 22
The students of Abraham Lincoln School 22 have a cool new view at the entrance to the building, a sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Artist @shawndunwoody said the piece was inspired by the first meeting of the two men at the White House. As the story goes, in 1863 Douglass arrived to meet the President without an appointment as many waited outside to have an audience with Lincoln. He sent his card up the line and within two minutes he heard, “Mr Douglass,” and was ushered in, passing many who had waited days
