Celebrate Douglass Day

Douglass Day is a national transcribe-a-thon. This year we will be transcribing the papers of Mary Ann Shad (1823-1893). She was one of the earliest Black women to edit a newspaper, serve as a Civil War recruiter, attend law school, and so much more.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 12 – 3 pm in the Kislak Center on the 6th floor of Van Pelt Library to learn history, enjoy community, and snacks!
