Douglass Day Celebration
Hagerstown Community College will offer a Transcribe-a-thon, in honor of Frederick Douglass Day and Black History Month. The Transcribe-a-thon, an online crowdsourcing project, will focus on transcribing digitized records from the papers of Anna Julia Cooper, a visionary black feminist, teacher, leader and intellectual. The project will bring African American history to digital life, joining forces with ore than 1,500 people at 45 locations across North America and Europe. Members of the public, especially teachers and students, are invited to attend. Participation is free and no experience or equipment is required.
