On July 5, 1852, Frederick Douglass gave a speech at an event commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence that was held at Rochester’s Corinthian Hall. He actually gives a biting oratory, in which he tells his audience, “This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.” Actor Danny Glover reads abolitionist Frederick Douglass’s “Fourth of July Speech, 1852″ as part of a reading from Voices of a People’s History of the United States (Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove) in Los Angeles, CA; enjoy!

It’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with genealogy extraordinaire – Randy Seaver — and tonight’s mission, should I decide to accept it, is:
Knowing that a ”Bucket List” is a wish list of things to do before death:
What is on your Genealogy Bucket List? What research locations do you want to visit? Are there genea-people that you want to meet and share with? What do you want to accomplish with your genealogy research? List a minimum of three items – more if you want!”
