Free Creative Dialogue -- Beyond Slavery: Frederick Douglass and the Quest for Universal Rights, 2/4, 7 p.m.

Abolitionist Frederick Douglass formed many friendships on his trip to Dublin, Belfast, and Cork, including a close friendship with Daniel O'Connell, a figure still revered in Ireland today for his role in Catholic emancipation and his fierce opposition to slavery. This conversation will feature writer and educator Colum McCann, author of TransAtlantic and cofounder of Narrative4, a global nonprofit dedicated to social change. He will be joined by Dr. Sheri L. Parks, Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, and UMD professors Ira Berlin and Patrick OShea to explore Douglasss influence on religious freedom, gender issues and slavery. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 3, 2014
