The VT Humanities Council (and local co-sponsors) proudly present the third annual “Reading Frederick Douglass – The Meaning of the fourth of July for the Negro” event on Wednesday, July 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main Street, Brattleboro.
Join us as we read together the fiery July 5, 1852 speech in which the great abolitionist orator Frederic Douglass took exception to being asked to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This is a participatory event in which community members are invited to witness and/or join in this communal reading and discussion. For more information call Claire Halverson 802-254-6098.
