Join the Digital Scholarship Group, the Women Writers Project, and the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks in our celebration of Douglass Day, an event honoring the life and birthday of Frederick Douglass. At this event, we will be transcribing the papers of Mary Church Terrell, an educator, women's rights advocate, and civil rights activist, using the Library of Congress' By the People platform. After a brief welcome and introduction, we will split into smaller groups for the transcriptions.

Our Douglass Day celebration is free and open to the public. No previous experience is necessary.

Registration is required. RSVP here:
