On the 4th July 1852, American National Day, Frederick Douglass is invited to give a speech. His tone is intelligent and educated, his oration is brilliant. In his state as a slave, Douglass can’t stop making rhetorical questions, powerful, many times ironic: why have they elected him to speak on the day of White People’s Independence day ? Does one need to argue that a slave is a human being? With examples and emotional descriptions, in one of the most famous speeches of American history, Douglass brings to light the the hipocrisy of human beings and the horror of slavery.
