The Charlemont Forum is hosting a community reading of Frederick Douglass' famous speech, will take place exactly 165 years after its initial presentation. The co-artistic directors of the Double Edge Theater of Ashfield, are partnering with the Charlemont Forum to choreograph an engaging event. Actors from the Double Edge Theater together with approximately nine other readers who have volunteered from the hill towns, will give a dramatic reading of this stirring speech, which dates back to 5 July, 1852. The event will include singing of Negro spirituals and a post-reading discussion of the issues raised in the reading. After the event, refreshments will be served in the Social Hall.
