Product Description
What to a Slave is the 4th of July is a classic speech delivered by Frederick Douglass on July 5th, 1852 to a crowd at the Ladies Anti-Slavery Society in Rochester, New York. In it he attacked the morality and irony of the United States for calling itself a republic yet having millions of people in it who are not free in the slightest, and for celebrating freedom on July 4th yet not including everyone in it.

This text is an essential read for anyone learning about the time period immediately before the Civil War as it highlights the glaring inequalities in the American society of the time.

This close-read provides the perfect mechanism to teach your students about Frederick Douglass, and the growing anti-slavery movement!
