COMMUNITY READ OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS’S FAMOUS SPEECH–FEBRUARY 12 
  
On Monday, February 12 at 5:30 p.m., take part in a public participatory reading of Frederick Douglass’s famous Fourth of July Address at the Rockingham Library’s Top Floor Meeting Room.   

 Volunteer readers are sought to read short consecutive sections of Douglass’s speech which challenge the audience, “What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence?  Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us?”  Thirty minutes is all that is needed to read this abridged version of the speech out loud as a community.  

This program is free and open to the public.  For more information, call 802-463-4270, email [email protected] or go to www.rockinghamlibrary.org.
