A new resolution called H.R. 6336 has been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. The resolution will bring the Frederick Douglass historical statue to the U.S. Capitol. The statue has been sitting at One Judiciary Square (a government building) for years. The statue of Frederick Douglass will be the third African-American figure to be housed in Emancipation Hall, along with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Sojourner Truth. Overall, there are 180 statues located at the U.S. Capitol.
