Description

Following on from her successful ‘Strike for Freedom’ exhibition on the anti-slavery author and freedom fighter Frederick Douglass at the National Library of Scotland, Professor Celeste-Marie Bernier shared her fascinating research on the history of nineteenth-century African American authors and activists in Edinburgh. Until now the stories and activities of this grass-roots movement have received little attention, and this unique lecture provided a fresh insight into this untold aspect of our city’s revolutionary and radical history.
