Boris Johnson and Joe Biden met at Carbis Bay on the eve of the G7 summit
Carbis Bay, England:
Prime Minister Boris Johnson presented US President Joe Biden with a framed photograph of a British mural depicting 19th-century black abolitionist Frederick Douglass, the British leader’s office said Thursday.
Biden returned the favor by gifting Johnson, an avid cyclist, a US-made bike and helmet, and gifting a silk scarf and leather bag made by military wives for his wife Carrie.
Johnson’s gift, presented at a G7 summit that marks Biden’s first official overseas engagement and a chance to reaffirm transatlantic ties, is a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement that set the relationship racial issues in the foreground in both countries.
Douglass escaped slavery in the United States and became an abolitionist leader who visited Britain and Ireland, with which Biden has ancestral ties.
Biden quoted Douglass in a 2020 race speech at a time when the country faced questions about contemporary and historical racial injustice sparked by a protest movement that has also spread to Britain and has caused a similar wave.
The mural is painted on the wall of a residential street corner in Edinburgh, a town where Douglass stayed on his tour, by artist Ross Blair who used the hashtag #blacklivesmatter when unveiling the piece online for the first time in 2020.
Douglass’ black and white wall portrait was photographed by dual Anglo-American national Melissa Highton.
The First Lady of the United States, Jill Biden, received a first edition of “The Apple Tree”, a collection of short stories from the 20th century British author Daphne du Maurier, who lived in Cornwall, the picturesque corner of the England which hosts the G7 summit.
