The Frederick Douglass Writing Club

Baba Bomani
Program Type


Students learn about the career of Frederick Douglass and imitate it by writing autobiographies, journalism, and speech-writing as well as raps.


Typically, residencies range from $2,500 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting
