Future Focus brings Frederick Douglass Reading to Worcester

FrederickDouglass-July1-2013-ffm3-775x1024In his fiery July 5, 1852 speech, the great abolitionist orator Frederick Douglass took exception to being asked to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. That exception took the form of his now famous lecture, The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro.

Join us on July 1, 2013 at 12 p.m. on historic Worcester Common, 455 Main Street, to celebrate the 161st Anniversary of this potent speech.

The premises of the event: One person shows up with a poster. Another with a mike. A third with a stack of speeches. Soon people line up to take turns reading paragraphs from Frederick Douglass’s most famous speech, and the public square is filled with people reading along. Before you know it, they are actually talking to each other.

The reading will be held on Worcester Common, behind City Hall and in the event of  rain, the event will move to City Hall, in the Levi Lincoln Room, 3rd Floor.

Sponsored by the City of Worcester with funding being provided by the Worcester Arts Council in collaboration with the American Antiquarian Society, Christ Tabernacle Apostolic Church, Cultural Affairs Office of the City of Worcester, Jeremiah’s Inn, John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, Mass Humanities, Mass Cultural Council, Worcester Historical Museum, Worcester Public Library, Worcester Women’s History Project and the Worcester Youth Center.
