Frederick Douglass and the White Negro

Documenting Frederick Douglass’s escape to Europe after the 1845 publication of his infamous narrative, the film focuses on his  first port-of-call, Ireland, exploring its profound influence on his evolving sense of self, the many life-long friendships he established there, and the  influence his stay had on tumultuous relations in the United States between Irish and African Americans.

My research on Douglass served as a foundation for the film and I appear on screen as a scholarly resource.  You can watch the trailer or the entire documentary is available through Camel Productions in Dublin.
