Frederick Douglass talk at Albany museum
The Irish American Heritage Museum, 370 Broadway, Albany, presents a free program Saturday, Feb. 6, at 2 p.m., on statesman and social reformer Frederick Douglass’ lecture trip to Ireland as a young man.
This talk will discuss the life of the great social reformer, statesman and orator Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), with an emphasis on his lecture trip to Ireland as a young man in 1845 and how this influenced his later views on abolition and human rights.
Tim Madigan, director of Irish Studies at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, will discuss how the visit influenced Douglass’ later views on abolition and human rights and the role that meeting Irish emancipator Daniel O’Connell played in his commitment to the cause of human freedom.
