Video: Frederick Douglass' 1852 Speech "The Meaning of July 4th for the Negro"

Here is Morgan Freeman performing a bit of Frederick Douglass' The Meaning of July 4th for the Negro  from 1852. The harsh question I've asked myself is how much of this speech still rings true today?!? Enjoy your holiday with friends and family, but always know your history!
