In honor of the 200th birthday of Frederick Douglass, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Smithsonian Transcription Center, and the Colored Conventions Project are jointly hosting an event bringing together people to transcribe the Freedmen's Bureau Papers.
No experience with transcribing is necessary. Instructions, as needed, will be provided during the session. Participants may stay for any amount of time and may drop-in at any point during the three-hour event.
And, because it's a birthday celebration, we will have cake!
