Participate in live, virtual reading of Frederick Douglass’ address “What, to the Slave, is your Fourth of July?”

Greetings from the Library! Would you be interested in participating in a live, virtual reading of Frederick Douglass’ famous address, What, to the slave, is your Fourth of July?
 
In an effort to provide educational programming and virtual discussion spaces addressing Black Lives Matter and issues of systemic racism in America, the Wayland Library will be hosting this event on Thursday, July 2nd at 7pm. We are following the model program created by Mass Humanities and hosted on the Boston Common the last few years. 
 
The Library is looking for volunteers to read 2-3 paragraphs aloud, in a Zoom setting, and to possibly participate in a brief discussion/reflection exercise afterwards. The text is dense but powerful. The abridged version of the address is 30-35 minutes total and we anticipate 15-20 minutes for discussion. Please respond ASAP if you are interested (email Courtney Michael). Paragraphs will be distributed to readers on Sunday.
 
Thank you for your time, attention, and commitment to the community of Wayland.
 
Sincerely
Courtney Michael (Library) and Mary Antes (Board of Selectmen)
