I completed my BA History degree at University College London in 2011, and finished a Masters in Public History, graduating with Distinction, from Royal Holloway University. During my Masters I began a digital project on Frederick Douglass in Britain and over the last two years it has grown substantially to include teaching resources, information on abolitionists and Douglass’ impact on Britain. (https://sites.google.com/site/frederickdouglassinbritain/) As a result of this, I have led a BASA seminar at Senate House in January 2013 and spoken at the dedication of a Nubian Jak Heritage Plaque to Frederick Douglass in London, and given a radio interview with Colourful FM to publicise it. In the last year, I have written various blog posts for the Black Presence website, Black Atlantic, the Sandpit (Royal Holloway’s Public History website) and Public History Commons, and had a short article published in the December 2013 issue of Crossfire Magazine. In July of this year, I presented a paper about Douglass’ celebrity at the University of Portsmouth for a conference entitled ‘Celebrity Encounters: Celebrity in the Nineteenth Century’. I started a PhD about Frederick Douglass in Britain at the University of Nottingham in September 2014.
