Learn more about the life of famed African American abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass (1818-1895). In partnership with Liverpool Irish Festival, participants will talk through some of Douglass’s experiences; learn about his connections with Liverpool and Ireland and see what form his actions against racism took. In doing so, we can learn something about our image, what a selfie says about us and how we identify with our representation. 

Douglass was also a master at using early photography to aid representation. At the workshop, there will also be the opportunity to sit for your very own sepia portrait, amidst items that represent you.
