“Today I held history in my hands! Your legacy and passion for creating change is an inspiration.” Kenneth B. Morris, Jr. is descended from two of the most important names in American history: he is the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and the great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington. His life until the year 2007 could be described as distinguished yet decisively disengaged from his lineage until Providence called. Ken’s career and life path are driven by a mission to end human trafficking and all forms of servitude with a clear focus

Your remarks were warm and personal as they were thought-provoking. It was a pleasure to learn about your famous ancestors in such an intimate way. Many staff commented afterwards how much they enjoyed your presentation. I appreciate and am grateful that you hit directly on the themes on which we focus in this Project, especially that we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us, and that our freedom is the result of their blood and toil.

Mr. Morris has definitely inherited his Great Great Great Grandfather’s oratorical talents and gives a captivating presentation of his family genealogy and history of rising out of slavery to achieve historical accomplishments that have impacted the lives of generations of African-Americans.
