Douglass Day is an annual event celebrating Frederick Douglass’ birthday and the founding of Black History Month. This year, there will be a virtual transcription event of the papers of Mary Church Terrell, one of the founders of Douglass Day.
What is virtual transcription? We’ll be examining the archives, many of which are in handwriting and are hard to digitally transcribe, and we will type the descriptions.
No experience necessary – we will walk through the steps together!
