We invite you to an online birthday party for Frederick Douglass, who escaped slavery to become an influential abolitionist, author, and orator. Although Douglass was born into bondage, and never knew his birth date, he chose to celebrate every year on February 14th. Let's honor him by celebrating and preserving Black history together.

We'll start with a keynote address by Su’ad Abdul Khabeer (http://www.suadabdulkhabeer.com/), and then you can drop in to participate:

* Virtual transcription session: transcribe the papers of the Colored Conventions (https://coloredconventions.org/) — documents from state and national conventions of Black activists in the 19th century
* Digital arts and crafts session: make valentines for Black women activists
