In recognition of Black History Month, the Chattanooga Tea Party is pleased to host KCarl Smith, founder of Frederick Douglass Republicans, as its speaker Thursday, February 20 at 6:30pm.
Frederick Douglass was born a slave in 1818 but escaped and became a leading abolitionist throughout his adult life. He is referred to by many as the father of the civil rights movement and was even an advisor to President Abraham Lincoln.
Our speaker, KCarl Smith, is an unyielding defender of the Constitution and Liberty. As a Retired US Army officer, KCarl knew three things about himself: he was black, a Christian, and a Democrat. One night though, after a personal encounter with God, he decided to change how he voted.
KCarl states, “I’m not a black conservative. I am a Frederick Douglass Republican and as such I believe in respect for the Constitution, limited government, individual responsibility and respect for life.”

The meeting will take place at The Century Club Banquet Hall, 3221 Harrison Pike (off Access Road, just south of the Highway 153-Amnicola Highway intersection, next to The Lighting Gallery).
