“With liberty and justice for all”?

Alethia Jones, PhD Guest Speaker

Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” challenged the rhetoric of America with the conditions of Africans in America at his time. Today we revisit Douglass’s challenges in light of our modern setting in a new political era.
