“About the history of Douglass Day

Douglass Day was one of the original inspirations for Black History Month, and was revived starting in 2017 by the Colored Conventions Project. Learn a bit about the history of Douglass Days, past and present (plus a new mini-documentary).

Douglass Day is made possible by a large number of partners, models, and supporters. Past and present supporters include:

The Center for Black Digital Research at Penn State, the Colored Conventions Project, the Anna Julia Cooper Digital Project, the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center at Howard University, the Princeton University Center for Digital Humanities, the PSU Libraries, the PSU Center for Humanities and Information, and the PSU College of Liberal Arts, the American Studies Association for a Community Partnership Grant, and Zooniverse.

The transcribe-a-thon this year is powered by By the People from the Library of Congress.” douglassday.org

Plan to attend on February 12 from 10 am  to noon.

You can help out by transcribing historic documents.
