Frederick Douglass iPhone Case, Parchment, by Annette & Jon Fortt
Frederick Douglass was born a slave, and became one of America's best-known abolitionists. He spoke out forcefully against injustice where he saw it, giving speeches encouraging African Americans to fight for the Union in the Civil War despite unequal conditions, and decrying injustices blacks faced during Reconstruction.
This case design is based on a bookmark Annette Fortt created in the late 1980s. Jon and Annette collaborated to adapt it for this iPhone case, which pays tribute to Douglass's determination. The text is a quote from Douglass: "If there is no struggle, there is no progress."
