Congress approves DC statue of Frederick Douglass in Capitol complex

Congress just approved having the District of Columbia give a statue of the great African-American historic figure Frederick Douglass for display in the U.S. Capitol complex. All states get two statues, but the district, which is not a state, received the right to one statue, a victory for locals. The Douglass statue is currently housed at One Judiciary Square in the District. (James Lawler Duggan/MCT)
