Proposed Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman statues

This art is controversial because it hasn't happened yet. Supporters of African-American legends Douglass and Harriet Tubman have been trying for years to have their statues erected in the Maryland State House. The move was defeated in the legislature in 2012 and 2013. But now that the plan has been endorsed by Gov. Larry Hogan, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael E. Busch, it's probably just a matter of time. The bust of Douglass shown here was placed in the U.S. Visitor Center on Capitol Hill in 2013.
