fdwc-logo-blackThe FDWC is a club for students focused on writing and communication, with an emphasis on the life and writing of Frederick Douglass. The curriculum is designed to be presented in an all boys, or all girls, classroom setting. Currently the FDWC meets at E.W. Stokes Elementary School on Saturdays, and at Adinkra Cultral Arts Center with the Sankofa Homeschool Collective, but we are looking to expand to other locations in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, as well as online. We concentrate on abolition and the civil war, speech writing and public speaking, autobiographical writing, journalism, and music creation. Critical analysis of excerpts from Douglass’ biography are coupled with travel to historic sites for further exploration and information. These include field trips to landmarks including the Frederick Douglass’ house in Southeast Washington, the Douglass Myers museum in Baltimore, and the Harper’s Ferry in West Virginia. We also frequently take classes at the Newseum in Washington DC. For more information about the Frederick Douglass Writing Club, contact us here.
