Retro 51 salutes Frederick Douglass with this limited-edition pencil
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress." American author, journalist, reformer and abolitionist Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) remains one of the most influential voices for freedom of all time. His legacy lives on through his works and now in this collectible Retro 51 mechanical pencil. Crafted in brass with copper trim, the Frederick Douglass pencil evokes the tenacious spirit of the 19th century and this indefatigable defender of human rights.
