This year for Wawa Welcome America, The African American Museum in Philadelphia invites you to reflect on the meaning of independence. How do you define independence for yourself and how does it apply to your community and country? To commemorate Independence Day, The African American Museum in Philadelphia looks to the wise words of Frederick Douglass in his 1852 speech, “What to the Negro is the Fourth of July?” Listen in as reader Carlo Campbell recounts one of Douglass’ most powerful speeches. Further, check out our new Audacious Freedom Cryptograms and Word Searches to train your brain on Black History facts and figures.
