Carrboro Community Reading of “The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro”

July 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| Free

The Town of Carrboro is pleased to announce that it will be holding a Community Reading of Frederick Douglass’ essay, “The Meaning of  the Fourth of July for the Negro” on July 4, 2014. The reading will occur in the Town of Carrboro Board Room from 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m. Please note the reading will be part of the day-long Carrboro July 4th Celebration. The community is urged to attend and listen to the reading of this compelling work.

As Mayor Lavelle says, “The piece reflects a sobering point of view about what is commonly considered to be America’s Independence Day, and is certainly a part of the history of this country that needs to be recognized and remembered. This reading is especially significant this year, as July 4th falls two days after the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act by President Lyndon B. Johnson.”

Please e-mail Sharmin Mirman at smirman@townofcarrboro.org if you would like to be a reader.
