The Frederick Douglass Project is an initiative of the Humanities Program at Providence College, with support from the Jack Miller Center, which aims to cultivate in students the skills of reasoned debate and persuasion necessary for a healthy and free society. The Frederick Douglass Project promotes a greater understanding of the importance of rational disputation and persuasion in our democracy, and offers students the opportunity to practice those arts. To that end, it sponsors a series of speaker events and writing workshops culminating in a persuasive Essay & Public Speaking contest held in the Spring semester.
