As the most photographed figure of his era, abolitionist, orator, and human and women's rights campaigner, and ambassador Frederick Douglass is an iconic face of freedom in the U.S. and abroad. The transatlantic publication of If I Survive: Frederick Douglass and Family in the Walter O. Evans Collection, reveals the collective family endeavor behind Douglass' struggle. What does the Douglass family story and this black archive teach us about comtemporary fights for freedom, gender and research, scholarly collaboration, and friendship? Join Celeste-Marie Bernier, professor of black studies at the University of Edinburgh; Africana Studies Professor Kim F. Hall; and other members of the Barnard community for a conversation celebrating the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial.

A panel with Celeste-Marie Bernier, Kim F. Hall, Marisa Fuentes, Quandra Prettyman, and Frances Sadler '72
