Join us for a community reading of Frederick Douglass's speech "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” at St. Anne's Church in Lowell, MA on Thursday, July 5, 2018. 

Invited guests and visitors may take turns reading the oration aloud. If you'd like to be a reader, or if you have a selection in mind, email allison_horrocks@nps.gov. 

This year, many cities and historic sites will be honoring the bicentennial of Douglass's birth with readings and other special events. Come and be part of history.
