What To The Slave Is The Fourth of July?

On July 5, 1852, Frederick Douglass gave a keynote address at an Independence Day celebration and asked, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”
 
Members and Staff of The Riverside Church put together a video montage reading a few excerpts that were particularly relevant to today, in Frederick Douglass’ exact words, and used previous examples from readings by both James Earl and Danny Glover.
