A 4th of July Oration - Liberty and Justice for All ?

Featuring Professor A. J. Williams-Myers
Funded by the New York Council for the Humanities

A founding concept of our nation (Liberty and Justice for All), was challenged by compromises made for the sake of the Union: compromises with slavery, equality, oppression. Frederick Douglass challenged the rhetoric of America with the conditions of Africans in America at his time. Today we revisit Douglass challenges in light of our modern setting.

Saturday, July 4, 11am - 1pm - Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence rear yard - 194 Livingston Avenue, Albany

Plan to Attend: RSVP to 432-4432: Bring your own lawn chair!
