This week, D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown (D) shares his list. Brown puts the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site at number one.

Brown says the site “is a shrine to the resilience and fortitude of enslaved African Americans who fought tirelessly for their humanity and dignity and in so doing laid the foundation for a movement that shaped the course of American history.”
