The contributions of noted abolitionist, author, and statesman Frederick Douglass (c.1817-1895) inspired the Wadsworth’s exhibition I Am Seen… Therefore, I Am: Isaac Julien and Frederick Douglass. Exhibition curators Profs. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Sarah Lewis talk with artist Sir Isaac Julien about the ways image and history weave throughout his work, Lessons of the Hour, a multi-screen film meditation about the life and times of Frederick Douglass.
