Independence Day Speech

Font Size
The excerpt below is from Frederick Douglass’s “Independence Day” speech in 1852. The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity and independence, bequeathed by your fathers is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought life and healing to you has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.
-Frederick Douglass, “Independence Day” speech (1852)
