Pablo Fanque in New York, USA & Preston, Lancashire

May 5, 2015


2nd - 6th - Rochester, New York



Heritage Corner's Joe Williams is a guest lecturer in the home town of abolitionist Frederick Douglass, performing a play about Pablo Fanque - The Fishes of Isis. Ironically, the two African icons happened to be in Wakefield, Yorkshire, on the same evening in 1846 - we do not know if they met.






Different departments at Rochester College were introduced to the themes and research of Heritage Corner. A busy week cementing a partnership with great memories and inspiring exchanges.


Professor Timothy Kneeland, history scholar and coordinator of this programme is


familiar with Heritage Corner Walks from previous visits to Leeds in partnership with Leeds Beckett University.


A student comment on the college blog about Heritage Corner states "...We had a short but powerful history walk with a fantastic guide named Joe. The walk took place at Leeds University... where we learned about major figures as a piece of African history. The campus, covered in history and even grave sites, was beautiful to see and a great way to learn about slavery, freedom, and colonization .."
