'Eleven days and a half gone and I have crossed three thousand miles of the perilous deep. Instead of a democratic government, I am under a monarchical government. Instead of the bright, blue sky of America, I am covered with the soft, grey fog of the Emerald Isle. I breathe, and lo! the chattel becomes a man. I gaze around in vain for one who will question my equal humanity, claim me as his slave, or offer me an insult.' Frederick Douglass. This project aims to reinterpret the journey to Ireland taken by the American abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, in a bid to gain his freedom from slavery.
