Whose independence?
Independence celebrations bring up questions about the reality of Black life in America.

Flag waving, cookouts, fireworks and parades are staples of the July 4 celebrations that punctuate America every year. Black folks will be among those celebrating, eating, drinking and sometimes waving flags. But before the inception of this country, Blacks have never been fully included.

And amending the condition of Black folk to make them full-fledged Americans remains a long way off: Blacks die earlier, suffer more poverty, serve harsher prison sentences and would need over 200 years to achieve the amount of wealth Whites hold today.

The contradiction between a nation that declares itself to be bastion of democracy, individual and human rights and the plight of Blacks is not a new observation. “Fellow-citizens, pardon me, allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence?” asked abolitionist Frederick Douglass in 1852.
