Thank you to everyone that supported and attended today’s reading of Frederick Douglass’ inspiring “The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro” that took place earlier today at the Worcester Common.

A special “Thank you” and hat tip to City Councilors Sarai Rivera, Kathleen Toomey and Konstantina Lukes for attending and participating in today’s reading.

A huge star-studded “Thank you” to Mass Humanities and the Worcester Arts Council for sponsoring and providing the funding for today’s event along with the readers that participated in bringing to life Frederick Douglass’ “The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro”. 

I would also like to thank the great children from Christ Tabernacle Apostolic Church Youth Choir, led by Sister Micha Davis, who sang beautifully and confirmed that children truly are our future; as well as Mable Millner, Associate Dean of Students for Diversity and Inclusion and Director of Multicultural Education at the College of the Holy Cross for reminding us that we have to do better as a Nation by “Raising up…..Praying up….and Speaking Up”, along with Trooper Joe Glover of the Buffalo Soldiers.
