Frederick Douglass in Ireland

Born into slavery in the early 19th century, writer and activist Frederick Douglass remains one of the most important and influential figures of the American abolitionist movement. With Douglass’ great-great-granddaughter Nettie Washington Douglass in conversation with historian Professor Christine Kinealy and Dennis Brownlee (founder and president of African American Irish Diaspora Network), this online event coincides with MoLI’s exhibition about Frederick Douglass. Hosted by MoLI in partnership with the African American Irish Diaspora Network and the Department of Foreign Affairs, the event will be introduced by Ciarán Madden, Consul General of Ireland in New York.
