KAUNEONGA LAKE - Oliver King is bringing his award-winning performance of Frederick Douglass' historic 1852 speech - “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro” to Bethel on Friday, July 5 at 7 p.m. Hosted by the Bethel Council of the Arts (“BCA”) at Artspace, its gallery, performance and exhibition space located at 3575 State Route 55 in the heart of Kauneonga Lake, King will once again take to the podium and become Frederick Douglass for the evening.
During the 1850s, Frederick Douglass typically spent about six months of the year travelling extensively giving lectures. During the winter of 1855-1856 he gave over 70 lectures during a tour that covered almost five thousand miles. And his speaking engagements and activism did not halt at the end of a tour.
From his home in Rochester, New York, he took part in local abolition-related events.
This event is a fundraiser for the BCA. The admission charge for the event is $10.00 for paid BCA members and $15.00 for non-members. Seating is limited and we recommend that you reserve your seat by emailing BCA@BethelArt.org using the reference “Douglass” in the subject line on or before July 1st. Payment can be made at the door by cash, check or credit card. The 45-minute performance will be followed by a reception open to BCA members and all event attendees. Refreshments will be served.
Show attendees at Artspace will be surrounded by the BCA's second exhibit of the 2019 season featuring its annual BCA Juried Group Show.
Artspace will be open during the 2019 season on Fridays from 2 PM to 8 PM, on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 PM to 8 PM, and on Mondays from 12 PM to 6 PM.
