    The Douglass statue was created by Steven Weitzman of Maryland and depicts the abolitionist standing next to a lectern while clutching a piece of paper.

    The movement of the Douglass bust is also a win for D.C. Each state has two statues in the Capitol and the District has been waiting for their turn. Frederick Douglass was a resident of Washington D.C. and served as the city’s first Recorder of Deeds.
