Join the Humanities Center and Syracuse University Libraries for a “transcribe-a-thon” event. We are partnering with Howard University, Penn State, and the Colored Conventions Project to mark Frederick Douglass’s chosen birthday, February 14 or Douglass Day. This year people around the nation will help to transcribe author, educator, Black Liberation activist, and scholar Anna Julia Cooper’s papers at Howard University, so they are more widely accessible and digitally preserved.

Anyone who’s interested can sign up for one or more 30-minute transcription slot by contacting

If you need an accommodation in order to fully participate in this event, please contact by February 7.

The event will include live-streamed programming/presentations from Howard University from 12-1pm, including some programming from AKA chapters in DC.
