A Communal Reading of Frederick Douglass
This year marks the 160th anniversary of Douglass’s reading of The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro. To celebrate and honor this profound speech, a communal reading will be held on Worcester’s Common. The premise of the event is: One person shows up with a poster, another with a microphone. A third attends with a stack of speeches. People line up to take turns reading paragraphs from Frederick Douglass’s speech. Soon there is a dialogue about race and equality in America.
