The Town of Carrboro is pleased to announce that it will be holding its 5th Annual Community Reading of Frederick Douglass’ essay “The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro” on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Introductory remarks will be provided by UNC-CH Assistant Professor William Sturkey. Dr. Sturkey is an historian of Modern American, African American, and Southern History with a particular research focus on race in the American South, working-class African American communities, the Civil Rights Movement, and the relationship between racial minorities and state and federal governments.
Frederick Douglass’ essay reflects a sobering point of view about what is commonly considered to be America’s Independence Day, and is a part of the history of this country that should be recognized and remembered. The community is urged to attend and listen to the reading of this compelling work. The reading is one of the events included in the day-long Carrboro July 4th Celebration.
