2018 SURS SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

Kenneth B. Morris, Jr. – Walks in the Shoes of his Great Ancestors

Mr. Morris descends 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 on his organization’s mission To Advance Freedom through Knowledge and Strategic Action. He could not have predicted that one day he would so fully embrace and be defined by the characteristics that so closely defined his famous ancestors.

Ken is President of the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives (FDFI), a public charity that endeavors to create a modern Abolitionist Movement in schools all over the country through the vehicle of Service-Learning curricula called History, Human Rights and the Power of One. Some of the work done by Ken and the organization since 2008 include: reaching approximately 60,000 middle and high school students through the Frederick Douglass Dialogues Tour; appearing on television, radio and in newspaper articles (including CNN, Democracy Now, PBS, NPR, The Tavis Smiley Show, Washington Post, USA Today and The CBS Evening News).

Ken received the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from the University of La Verne January 2012. In June 2012, he received the National Park Services Network To Freedom Underground Railroad Frederick Douglass Legacy Award.  In January 2014, Ken was awarded the Women’s E-News 21 Leaders for the 21st Century Ida B. Wells Award for Bravery in Journalism.  In April 2016, he received the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights’ Anne Frank Change the World Award.Kenneth B.
