July 4th Oration – Planning Meeting via Zoom

May 16, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Help bring the July 4th Oration to life by participating in the planning meetings.

This annual program is a signature event of Underground Railroad History Project. Using Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech, What to the Slave is Your Fourth of July, as the framework for this event, the concepts and application of liberty, citizenship, civic engagement and responsibility are examined from the historical perspective in light of contemporary injustices that continue to plague us as a society and as a world.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the May 16th meeting will be held electronically via Zoom. Connections detail follow –
