Join English Department faculty and graduate students in a transcribe-a-thon in honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass (c. 1818-95), abolitionist, diplomat, orator, author, and fugitive slave. Work with the Freedmen's Bureau manuscripts on Feb. 14, from noon to 3 p.m., in the Main Library's Lab A.
This event is part of a national day of transcription sponsored by the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Smithsonian Transcription Project, and the Colored Conventions Project. No experience is necessary to participate, and cake will be on hand. Come celebrate Douglass and Black History Month!
