Baldwin’s historical society is hoping to bring more attention to history’s effect on education in a series of famous speeches from literature being presented by Baldwin High School students.

Participating students were chosen from theater and public speaking classes. Juniors Malcom Jenkins and Jacob Dulya will be among those reciting speeches at the event.

Dulya will be reading the St. Crispin’s Day speech from Shakespeare’s Henry V

“It’s a really interesting and familiar piece for people to hear,” Dulya said. “It’s entertainment but it shows the education that goes with it.”

Jenkins will read Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Great Dictator.

“The whole speech is about him giving up power for freedom. It’s definitely interesting,” Jenkins said.

Along with Dulya and Jenkins, about another half dozen Baldwin students will be giving speeches of their choice.

“There are a lot of students involved in this,” Dulya said. “It’s all about involving the students.”

The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. today at the Baldwin municipal building.
