Preparing for her presentation, junior Valeria Jimenez begins reciting the speech "What is the Fourth of July to a Slave" by Frederick Douglass. It was required for students to merge famous speeches with their own personal opinions on a topic. “This opportunity to look for a speech and present it has been an incredible experience in my opinion,” Jimenez said. “This is because the speech I picked was ‘What is the Fourth of July to a Slave?’ by Frederick Douglass and it describes slavery in America from a former slaves point of view.”
