This Month in Black History: July


July, 1905

Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass gave a speech that is now known as the “What To The Slave Is The 4th Of July” speech.  Douglass was asked to give a speech on July 4th during a commemoration of the Declaration of Independence. However he choose to give one on July 5th instead. When Douglass gave his speech he acknowledged the signers of the Declaration of Independence but he made it clear that there was too much work to be done before the  4th of July would be a day of celebration for Blacks.
