Frederick Douglass, an African American abolitionist and former slave, visited Ireland in 1845. His trip was shaped by a number of experiences, including meeting Daniel O’Connell and achieving a level of personal freedom unimaginable in his home country. Originally written to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his birth in 2018, this talk examines Douglass’s visit to Ireland and his role as an abolitionist.
