Revisiting Frederick Douglass: Making Smart Moves in your English, Communications, or Liberal Arts Major is a program designed to promote valuing a liberal arts education and bring African American ideals to the center of the Cheyney experience.  This was the second workshop series/program created by Humanities and Communication Arts (HCA) faculty and funded by the Frederick Douglass Institute. The program aimed to ensure HCA student scholars provided a conference panel; it included faculty presentations by Dr. Virgilette Gaffin, Director of the Frederick Douglass Collaborative @ Cheyney, and a professional development session by Sheila L. Sawyer, a retired English teacher from West Chester school system. The duration of the program was five weeks with the culminating activity on 11/10/2010.
