We invite you to view this talk on "critical race theory" by Lebanon Valley College Professor Emeritus of History and Branch Secretary Michael Schroeder, delivered on Zoom at our general membership meeting of July 7, 2022.
Held under a copse of trees on the campus of Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA, on July 4, 2022, this Third Annual Frederick Douglass Community Oration was organized by Lebanon County Branch 26AA of the NAACP in collaboration with Lebanon Valley College as a solemn and celebratory act of public remembrance, one day shy of the 170th anniversary of the first time the famed abolitionist & orator delivered his historic speech in Rochester, NY. The taproots of racism run very deep in our country, and we cannot uproot that toxic legacy without ruthlessly honest and unfettered remembrance of their origins in 246 years of racialized slavery.
