“The Many Faces of Frederick Douglass,” Dr. Celeste-Marie Bernier, Sept. 19, 2014 [Maryland State House Old House of Delegates Chamber

Many Faces of Frederick Douglass _ Sept_1As an individual who was not only a household name but a household image in the nineteenth century, Frederick Douglass made repeated appearances across countless photographic portraits, engravings, lithographs, paintings and sculpture created by both Black and white
artists. Recognising the racist forces at work in the typically grotesquely caricatured visual incarnations produced by white artists, Douglass remained at war against the intellectual, aesthetic, social, moral and political damage resulting from attempts to commodify and objectify not only his own physicality but the corporeal realities of black women, children and men more generally. This lecture will introduce audiences to Douglass’ lesser and even unknown appearances in fine art and popular images.
