Community Reading: “What to a Slave is the 4th of July?”

July 8 @ 7:30 pm


Join Community members in the fourth annual reading of an amended version of Frederick Douglass’ influential speech, given on July 5, 1852 to the Rochester Ladies Anti-Slavery Society.

The life and works of Frederick Douglass continue to shape our understanding of America. One of the most celebrated orators of his day, Douglass’ powerful language, resolute denunciations of slavery and forceful examination of the Constitution challenge us to think about the histories we tell, the values they teach, and if our actions match our aspirations.

The Arts Council joins the community as a sponsor of this Zoom only event, sponsored by the Princeton Library. Register for the event from the Princeton Library website.
