Frederick Douglass Expert to Speak at University of Dayton and Greene County on September 11, 2017



Frederick Douglass was by far the most famous Black Republican who rose from slavery to prosperity. A number of groups are sponsoring several events featuring prominent speaker, K. Carl Smith to share the inspiring story of Frederick Douglas. Details are below:

Prominent African-American speaker, K. Carl Smith, will discuss “Frederick Douglass’ Rise from Slavery to Prosperity: The Importance of a Free and Prosperous America” on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., University of Dayton, Kennedy Union Ballroom. Admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments served. (Mr. Smith will also join folks in Greene County at TJ Chumps Restaurant at 11:30 on Monday, September 11. The restaurant is located at the intersection of I-675 and Dayton Yellow Springs Road, 1100 East Dayton Yellow Springs Road in Fairborn. Everyone will order off the menu [please call the Greene Co Republican Party at (937)474-8798 for a head count]. They will collect donations for the speaker.)

As an expert on Frederick Douglass, K. Carl Smith will present at UD the inspiring story of abolitionist, statesman, author, orator, and ex-slave Frederick Douglass. Attendees will learn how Frederick Douglass overcame slavery through education, a disciplined work ethic, land-ownership to create wealth, starting his own business, and using photography to remove cultural barriers. Frederick Douglass rose from slavery to prosperity and a position of eminence, becoming an adviser to Presidents–the ultimate American Dream Story.

Describing himself as a “Frederick Douglass Republican” who loves his country, K. Carl Smith is a former Army officer, graduate of Alabama A&M University, and an unyielding defender of the Constitution and Liberty. In 2011 Governor Robert Bentley appointed Smith to the Alabama Amistad Commission and the Affordable Homeowners Insurance Commission. Easily connecting with teens and millennials, Smith regularly receives standing ovations.

This event is hosted by the University of Dayton College Republicans and sponsored by the Greater Dayton Women’s Republican Club, Ohio Representative Niraj Antani, Ohio Representative Jim Butler, Joshua Christian Ministries, Mr. Harry Bossey, and the Greene County Republican Party.
