Deletion[edit]

I've deleted the following book from the Locke bibliography: Frederick Douglass, A Biography of Anti-Slavery (1935)

Though I've been able to find a few mentions of this on the web, for the most part, they all seem to be copies of the wikipedia entry. I've checked OCLC and the Library of Congress, and neither of them seem to have anything on it. I can't find any book by that title published by any author, anywhere. I'll be checking the National Union Catalog shortly.cbustapeck 18:47, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

How do people feel about the fact that this article was plagiarized from a current online edition of Encyclopedia Britannica? Haddy Nuff 03:23, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Ack! I'm surprised. It hadn't crossed my mind. I guess I've got my work cut out for me this afternoon. cbustapeck 16:09, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
    • I've completely rewritten the plagarized parts. I'll be adding more to the entry this afternoon. cbustapeck 16:47, 11 October 2006 (UTC)


Problem with a bit in the introduction[edit]

"He is unofficially called 'The Father of the Harlem Renaissance'.[sic]" How would one be the "official" Father of the Harlem Renaissance. Further, the period should be inside the quotation marks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pickleops (talkcontribs) 23:50, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

I found a proper source, and one that is ancient. Kingturtle (talk) 00:15, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

pronunciation question[edit]

Was his middle name pronounced LEEroy or luh-ROY? Ijon (talk) 06:00, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
