And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt began while Steinberg was an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center in 2016.

Solas Nua’s THE FREDERICK DOUGLASS PROJECT at The Yards Marina

Solas Nua, the DC-based organization bringing Irish contemporary arts state-side, has gone back two hundred years to find inspiration for its upcoming production, The Frederick Douglass Project. Commissioned to commemorate Douglass’ bicentennial, the production explores the abolitionist and leader’s 1845 visit to Ireland.

Non-historians and historians alike may be surprised to learn about this piece of the Douglass story, but it is unquestionably one of the most significant chapters in his life. On the heels of the publication of his autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Douglass traveled to Europe, spending six months touring Ireland in what would turn out to be the early days of the “Great Hunger” (1845-1849).

It was in Ireland that Douglass would come into his own, hone his skills as orator and leader, free from the constant fear of retribution, which he lived under in the United States. Douglass would write to William Lloyd Garrison that in Ireland, he was “not treated as a color, but as a man”. Inspired by the words of those advocating for Catholic Emancipation in Ireland, particularly Arthur O’Connor and Daniel O’Connell, Douglass grew to appreciate the power of language and vocabulary in the struggle for human rights.

The Frederick Douglass Project explores this unique period in Douglass’ life through the work of two esteemed playwrights, Psalmayene 24 (“An Eloquent Fugitive Slave Flees to Ireland”) and Deirdre Kinahan (“Wild Notes”), and through the blending of both African American and Irish cultures. For Psalmayene 24, this project is about more than the retelling of history. It is about busting open the box, both figuratively and literally. Leaving behind the well-known image of Douglass as a white-haired statesman
