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.
