Frederick Douglass’s 1852 speech on the Meaning of the Fourth of July to the Negro offers a sweeping analysis of the contradictions at the heart of the American national project. The animating question for Douglass is, What Does it Mean to be an African American? His approach to that question sheds light on the even more fundamental question: What Does it Mean to be an American? The speech is profoundly relevant today as we stand at another defining moment in our nation's history.
