“What To The Slave Is The Fourth Of July?”



Start at 11am

Event Details

July 4th – Independence Day – commemorates our declaration of independence from the tyranny of King George III, and stands as a national day of celebrating our freedom, liberty and patriotism.

But, this nation is still very much a work in progress. Freedom, justice and liberty have not come equally, or at the same time to each of us. As a nation, we still debate our values, and our expressions of those values.

The American Museum of Tort Law is proud to present a very special, original program to discuss those very issues with two unique events.
