Transcribe-a-thon: Mary Church Terrell Letters

Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019, 5 p.m.

Learn about a hometown hero as you help make her legacy discoverable by generations to come!

Gain skills in reading and transcribing historic materials as we work together to make the legacy of Mary Church Terrell, Civil Rights and Women’s Rights pioneer, discoverable for generations to come. By The People invites you to explore, transcribe and tag digitized Library collections.  

Library of Congress staff will lead a workshop on their new virtual volunteer program. DC Public Library staff will also share items related to Terrell’s life and impact on DC and the nation.

Bring a laptop if you have one -- limited number of library devices available. No transcription experience required! This workshop will last two hours.
