From the event: "Each year, we celebrate the chosen birthday of Frederick Douglass on February 14th. During our celebrations, we join forces at locations around the world. We work together to transcribe an online collection of Black history and culture. We aim to make Douglass Day open to everyone. Our planning team offers guides to help you learn how to transcribe or how to bring Douglass Day into your classroom. Douglass Day makes a real difference. We help create new resources for everyone to learn about Black history."
There is a live broadcast series on February 12th and 14th this year, a toolkit for teachers to incorporate the speakers (live broadcasting from YouTube) into their classroom and tools to get students, colleagues, and friends to organize an outreach program and participate in Black History Month and the birthday of Frederick Douglass.
