Reading Frederick Douglas Together-Somerville

June 30 @ 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

The Somerville Museum hosts an annual reading of Frederick Douglass’ famous address, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” delivered to an AntiSlavery Society in 1852. We are part of a number of communities across the Commonwealth that read this address together and reflect on our past and present. The readings are followed by our Project Scholar. This year, Kyera Singleton is our Project Scholar. This year, we’re also joining forces with the organization, Community Action Agency of Somerville (CAAS). This program is organized, supported, and sponsored by Mass Humanities.

Join us as we celebrate the legacy of Frederick Douglass by reading one of his most famous speeches together. The event will be followed by a discussion led by our Project Scholar, Kyera Singleton. This event is free and all are encouraged to attend and participate. Please RSVP through this link to receive updated details and information.
