Citizens of Brockton will read "What to the Slave is the 4th of July" out loud in the Douglass Community Garden in the language of their ancestors to honor our city's diversity. As part of the traditional reading, we have volunteers who will read each paragraph, representing twelve different languages. After the reading, we will enjoy a community conversation and social to discuss how the themes of the speech and Mr. Douglass's life resonate today.
