The Natick Historical Society invited local young people to participate in a socially-distanced community read of Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” in front of Morse Institute Library.
Wellesley College Associate Professor of History Brenna Greer made opening remarks and started the speech.
We apologize for the erratic audio quality, a victim of rush hour traffic and our lack of a good mic for our old iPhone. But we hope the spirit of the event comes through. And Natick Pegasus should have a better quality recording available soon.
