Venue: Auditorium, Carrubbers Centre, 65 High Street, Edinburgh.
We are delighted that Professor Celeste-Marie Bernier will give our Black History Month lecture this year on the story of 19th-century African American authors and activists who had links to the city. Until now the stories and activities of this grass-roots movement have received little attention, and this unique lecture will provide a fresh insight into this untold aspect of Edinburgh’s revolutionary and radical history. Professor Bernier is Personal Chair in English Literature and Professor of United States and Atlantic Studies at the University of Edinburgh. She will be signing copies of her biography of Frederick Douglass and his family If I Survive after the lecture.
