On Valentine’s Day 2020, we invite you to a birthday party for Frederick Douglass. Although Douglass was born into bondage, and never knew his birthdate, he chose to celebrate every year on February 14th. We celebrate this day as a moment for preserving Black history together. Join us online or at local events to help transcribe, read, and teach the papers of Anna Julia Cooper, a visionary Black feminist. Her work influenced generations, yet today she is under appreciated. Help us share her writings & legacy with future generations! Here at the University of Tennessee, we're having a transcribe-a-thon/birthday party at Hodges Library in the Mary Greer Room (across from the Public Services Desk) from 12:00pm-3:00pm. See you there!
