Black abolitionists in Ireland lecture March 23

In the spirit of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Georgia Southern University and Wexford Arts Centre (Ireland) present a free, open-to-all webinar, live Tuesday, March 23, at 3 p.m. (Eastern) in the US; 7 p.m. in Ireland. The leading expert in the field, Dr. Christine Kinealy, Professor of History, Quinnipiac University, offers an illustrated talk entitled “Black Abolitionists In Ireland.”

In the mid-19th century, Frederick Douglass, Sarah Parker Redmond, and other Black American abolitionists conducted speaking tours of Ireland. According to Douglass, his many months in Ireland defined him “not a color but as a man.” This talk is the first in our Black, Brown, and Green event series.

The website includes the link to the event.
