What, to the slave, is your 4th of July? A Virtual Community Reading Event

July 2 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT

Cost: Free

We will take turns reading aloud Frederick Douglass’ powerful 1852 speech to the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society and share some time for optional discussion and reflection. In an effort to provide educational programming and virtual discussion spaces addressing Black Lives Matter and issues of systemic racism in America, the Wayland Library will be hosting this event on Thursday, July 2nd at 7pm. We are following the model program created by Mass Humanities and hosted on the Boston Common the last few years.

If you are interested in participating as a readerplease contact Courtney Michael at cmichael@minlib.net.

To attend this event, please register here. You will receive the Zoom link via email on Thursday, July 2nd.
