For African Americans, #July4th is a reminder that not all people were free when the nation declared its #independence in 1776. #FrederickDouglass offers timeless words to capture the pain & meaning of that contradiction. Read his full speech: https://t.co/c4ohayf8fo. #July4

“The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity & independence, bequeathed by your fathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light & healing to you, has brought stripes & death to me. This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July?” — #FrederickDouglass Watch 5 of his young descendants read his iconic speech in this excellent video project from @NPR. Full video at https://t.co/MjH9YDQIaa. #IndependenceDay #July4th #July4 https://t.co/TFjUwik5I8

There’s no excuse for celebrating or honoring a legacy of white supremacy. 

We applaud #Mississippi's decision to remove #Confederate imagery from its state flag + the activists and legislators who have pushed for change. https://t.co/WRPaiVkIdv https://t.co/ynmELtcumg

House-passed #HEROESAct includes provisions that will aid in the fight against systemic inequity & racism includ. voter protections, small & min. owned biz support, & COVID19 testing & treatment for Medicaid recipients. Tell your Senators to take action https://t.co/VQWiMSMN1s

The social determinants of health put Black & Brown communities at risk before COVID began. Now, structural racism in housing, healthcare, employment & the environment leaves our communities more vulnerable than ever before. More about @FamiliesUSA rec’s: https://t.co/RIsNZ505OD

We think of LGBTQ architects of freedom, from #BayardRustin, who helped organize the 1968 March on Washington to #JamesBaldwin, who captured our struggles & hopes, and countless others who push us to new heights. We’re grateful for their vision + leadership.

Happy #Pride! 🌈 (2) https://t.co/gmZdHBJTJU
