Celebrate Independence Day with us and reflect on the many meanings of the holiday. We’ve got a whole day’s worth of programming planned, including a speech by Frederick Douglass delivered by historical interpreter Joel Cook, a deep dive into Jackie Robinson’s legacy of activism with the Jackie Robinson Museum, and sing-alongs that give voice to struggles and hopes throughout American history. Come together as a family and think about what the July 4th holiday means to you or your community! Check back in the coming days for more program details.
