Frederick Douglass Communal Reading is an annual event held thru out the CommonWealth of Massachusetts. In Worcester we hold the reading at Worcester City Hall Common & Plaza. Its a reading of the famous speech 'What is the Fourth of July to the Slave?'. A brutal analysis of America's pledges in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and its conduct of legal slavery and barbaric practices to enforce slavery. Frederick Douglass a run away slave, who learned how to read and write and could speak with great eloquence. This is one of his most potent speeches that was made in American History.
