Levy Lecture Series: Akbar Imhotep: Frederick Douglass, Orator and Abolitionist

February 8 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Free

Presented via Zoom.

Akbar portrays the heroic story of Frederick Douglass from his birth in 1818 to his death in 1895. Akbar’s portrayal will provide insight into how Frederick freed himself from slavery and became an outspoken abolitionist and a champion of women’s rights.

​Akbar Imhotep (Ock-Bar M-Hoe-Tep), a 2012 Governor’s Arts & Humanities Awardee, has been a professional storyteller since 1985 and has performed throughout Metro-Atlanta and the Southeast. For nineteen (19) years, he was storyteller-in-residence at the Wren’s Nests and is currently, a Wren’s Nest Rambler. For six years, he worked as a storyteller for Project Discovery at Zoo Atlanta. Before wearing the mantle and garments of a storyteller, he was a puppeteer-in-residence at the Center for Puppetry Arts and toured nationally with the Vagabond Marionettes.
