July 4th Oration: In These Challenging Times

July 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

 

Within the framework of Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech, ‘What to the Slave is Your Fourth of July”, Congressman Paul Tonko, as featured speaker for the 2018 July 4th Oration, will reflect on the meaning of July 4th in the context of our current political and social climate.

The legacy of the institution of slavery weighs us down as a nation, but, together, we can rise up and shake off the weight by carrying on the enduring legacy of our abolitionist forebears.

 

Program – 11am-12noon – bring your own chair if you can

Lunch – 1pm-2pm – bring a desert to share

Restroom facilities available. Parking is on Livingston Avenue and Third Street.
