Considered one of the most daring, eloquent speeches in the English language, Frederick Douglass’s fiery 1852 speech, “What to the Slave is the 4th of July?” challenges its audience, then and now, to consider the meaning of freedom, citizenship, and patriotism. After this initial reading, the audience will be invited to join the actors for a community reading of Frederick Douglass’ speech. A facilitated audience dialogue will follow the readings. Kid’s activities will be available throughout the program. Visitors are welcomed to bring folding chairs and picnic blankets. Tours of the Robbins House will be available before and after the program.
