Members of the Brockton community will assemble not far from our Liberty Tree and Underground Railroad stop to read Douglass' iconic speech "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July" in the language of our ancestors. Participants can access a copy of the speech online and sign up in advance using our Facebook page to choose a segment, translate it in advance and share it on the day of our reading - or simply come and spontaneously read a paragraph in English at the event. After the reading, we'll enjoy community conversation and many delicious varieties of pie. #RFDT19
