STRIKE FOR FREEDOM – FREDERICK DOUGLASS IN SCOTLAND

Directed by Parisa Urquhart

Strike for Freedom: Frederick Douglass in Scotland chronicles new efforts to memorialize Frederick Douglass’s abolitionist work in Scotland. In the 19th-century, Edinburgh was a city of freedom for Black social justice campaigners born into slavery in the USA. Committed to ‘telling the story of the slave’ and the ‘strike for freedom’, Douglass and other Black abolitionists came to the city to collaborate, speak publicly, and to inspire thousands to join the anti-slavery campaign.
