Native American link needed[edit]

Second paragraph, end of last sentence

"...whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant."

black, female, and immigrant have links to other articles

I believe that Native American could get a needed link by linking it to "Native Americans in the United States" article

The link appears to have been added. RivertorchFIREWATER 19:52, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Birth year of Frederick Douglass[edit]

In his autobiographies (Library of America) he states, "I suppose myself to have been born about the year 1817". Wikipedia states "1818".

  2017 is the 200th anniversary of his birth. CommonReader (talk) 16:54, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Please read the first paragraph under Life as a slave. And see this. The fact is, we don't really know, and neither did Douglass. RivertorchFIREWATER 19:41, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Incorrect statement about 2017 quarter[edit]

Under "Legacy and Honors", it says that an image of Douglass is on the front of a 2017 "America the Beautiful" series quarter. This is incorrect; it should say he is on the back of the quarter. According to their own article, the front side of those quarters use the same George Washington head that has been in use for quarters since 1932.2600:1015:B120:604B:1A7A:BA73:A971:12FE (talk) 21:56, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Strictly speaking, the standard terminology for coins isn't front and back but rather obverse and reverse. I have modified the wording accordingly. RivertorchFIREWATER 04:32, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
