Reading Frederick Douglass Together at Worcester State University

September 9 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

With sponsorship from Mass Humanities, Worcester State University is proud to host a reading and discussion of Frederick Douglass’s influential speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?,” which Douglass made in Rochester, New York, in 1852, having escaped from slavery in 1838. A panel of eighteen faculty, students, staff, community members, and distinguished guests will read from Douglass’s address and discuss its legacy. They will offer reflections on Douglass’s speech as a moral provocation and as an historical, political, literary, and cultural document of enduring relevance.
