Tuesday, February 18, 20203:30PM - Tuesday, February 18, 20205:00PM
At Greenwood Library - 148 & 149
Organized by Greenwood Library and Library of Virginia
Greg Crawford from the Library of Virginia will speak on the Library's African American Narrative project that aims to provide greater accessibility to pre-1865 African American history and genealogy found in the rich primary sources in its holdings. Traditional description, indexing, transcription, and digitization are major parts of this effort. However, and perhaps more importantly, this project seeks to encourage conversation and engagement around the records, providing opportunities for a more grassroots and diverse narrative of the history of Virginia's African American people.
Light refreshments will be served.
