What, to the slave, is your 4th of July? A Virtual Community Reading Event
July 2 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDTCost: 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 reader, please contact Courtney Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.
