Program Description:
How did the Transatlantic slave trade end? The answer requires a voyage between critical points of activism and resistance in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean. This course studies one snapshot of that political movement: the fugitive years of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass, whose long life took him from chattel slavery in Maryland to superstar status in Ireland to fame and notoriety in New York and beyond. Our two-week class walks in Douglass’s footsteps, tracing his 1845 – 1847 journey through London, Liverpool, Dublin, and Cork.
