In a project launched in 2018, communication Professor Shawn Parry-Giles and graduate students gathered these speeches and more by historically marginalized people in an archive intended to be used in classrooms to teach students about speeches not as well-known as the Gettysburg Address or “I Have a Dream.” The new Recovering Democracy Archives focuses on how those “seeking to fight injustice are really working on behalf of the public good to promote democratic practices,” said Parry-Giles.

Voices of Democracy (VOD) originated in conversations among the founding directors of the project: Shawn J. Parry-Giles, Robert Gaines, J. Michael Hogan, Rosa Eberly, and Martin J. Medhurst. In the summer of 2005, the University of Maryland (UM) and the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) were awarded a $195,023 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in support of the project.

Students have studied Communication in its many different forms at the University of Maryland since the university's earliest beginnings. In courses from public speaking to mediated communication, from public relations to intercultural communication, UM students continue to learn about the history, processes, and effects of human communication.
