Frederick Douglass Centre


The Frederick Douglass Centre at Newcastle Helix was officially opened by  Kenneth B Morris Jr., the great-great-great grandson of anti-slavery campaigner, Frederick Douglass. The opening ceremony was held on the 13th of November 2019 - exactly 52 years after Newcastle University awarded Dr Martin Luther King Jr an honorary degree.
