WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama has approved a resolution to move the District of Columbia’s statue of abolitionist Frederick Douglass to the United States Capitol making him the third African-American depicted in a statue there. Each of the 50 states has two statues in the Capitol, but the district’s statues of Douglass and architect Pierre L’Enfant are placed at One Judiciary Square.
