There are so many ways to celebrate the 4th of July! The Museum of Tort Law in Winsted on 654 Main Street, has planned two special events on Wednesday, July 4th to commemorate this holiday.
The first takes place at 11 a.m. and is titled, “What to a Slave is the 4th of July” Frederick Douglass Speech presented by noted scholar and professor, Dr. Felton Best. The speech, written and delivered in 1852 by the famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass is still studied in schools around the nation, and is still timely, in light of current events and our national dialogue.
The second event takes place at 2 p.m. and is titled Which is worse: Trampling on the Flag, or Trampling on the Constitution? You are invited to participate in this community discussion of our values, and in light of recent events – like the NFL protests, this discussion is more timely than ever. It will be a community forum, moderated by Richard L. Newman, executive director of the American Museum of Tort Law.
For reservations, please call the Museum at 860-379-0505 or email Joan Bowman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
