Celebrate the 4th of July weekend with Historic Annapolis!
On Sunday, join poet, author, and spoken word performer, Nathan M. Richardson as he captures completely the physical and spiritual essence of the great writer, orator, former slave and leading abolistionist Frederick Douglass. During this first-person portrayal, Mr. Douglass will present excerpts from his famous speech, “What, To The Slave, is the Fourth of July" and share more about his life, beliefs, travels and writings. A special presentation will occur at 10:30 am on the front terrace of the Paca House and will be presented free of charge. Additional presentations will occur at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm on the back terrace of the Paca House; admission fee is required.
Inside the William Paca House, it's July 4, 1776, and you'll encounter living history interpreters throughout this historic home. Meet William Paca, signer of the Declaration of Independence, his guests, and his servants as they discuss what that particular document might mean to the Colony of Maryland and their future.
Enjoy additional family activities, including special face painting and games, and you can even write a letter of thanks to our active-duty military and veterans!
