The Fourth of July - 4th of U LIE!

Written by

Frederick Douglass' famous speech was originally entitled "What to the Slave Is the 4th of July?"

Because DC residents still do not enjoy the freedom and independence that other Americans have, our message for the Palisades Parade on July 4th will be "What to the DC resident is the 4 of July?"  Without DC Statehood,  We are the Politically Enslaved"!  Our theme this year is "The 4th of U Lie!"

For more information, read "The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro" on the PBS website.
