Greyscale image of profile of Frederick Douglass  with an overlay of his signature in cursive on a purple and cream background with details about the event.

Join us in celebrating the life of Frederick Douglass through a nationwide “transcribe-a-thon” where we digitize materials to create new and freely available resources for learning about Black history. We will join others across the country to expand access to the writings of this remarkable abolitionist and social reformer.

Meet us on Wednesday, February 14 at the Daley Library in the IDEA Commons, Classroom A from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Drop in any time and lunch will be provided in room 1-470. We hope you can join us for this important work and to celebrate Black History Month!
