    2021 Douglass Day transcribe-a-thon

    Lauren Algee Tracker

      The Mary Church Terrell Papers are this year’s Douglass Day virtual service project. Can you help transcribe these final pages of Terrell’s archives in honor of her friend Frederick Douglass? The new Terrell project, "A Life Illuminated" is now live! Read about Terrell and Douglass's decades-long friendship and Terrell’s founding of Douglass Day in our recent blogpost. Then jump in to the weekend-long transcribe-a-thon here!


      Douglass Day isn’t just transcription. It’s also classroom activities, discussion of Terrell’s life and legacy by experts and volunteers, and even a birthday cake bake-off! Learn more about Douglass Day including schedule and resources on DouglassDay.org.
