What does the Declaration of Independence mean to a human being who is not free? Frederick Douglass answered this question in a fiery speech, after being asked to speak in celebration of the 4th of July— indicting the wrongs done or ignored by those in power. Join us as we read Douglass’ speech of July 5, 1852 and hear his words resonate in our lives and times. Any and all are invited to come. This is a participatory event, so feel free to listen or join in by reading passages. Copies of the speech will be provided; refreshments will follow.

Presented by the Tunbridge Public Library.
