Black Women's Organizing Archive

The Black Women’s Organizing Archive brings together the scattered archives and buried histories of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Black women organizers, intellectuals, and activists.

Douglass Day

Douglass Day is an annual event that celebrates the chosen birthday of Frederick Douglass every February with a transcribe-a-thon to share and preserve Black records.

Colored Conventions Project

The Colored Conventions Project (CCP) brings seven decades of nineteenth-century Black organizing to digital life, gathering the movement’s scattered records in one place, and making them freely accessible for the very first time.

Welcome to the Center for Black Digital Research!

The Center for Black Digital Research/#DigBlk is a public-facing research center committed to bringing the histories of early Black organizing to digital life through innovative scholarship and collaborative partnerships. The Center is home to the award-winning Colored Conventions Project, Douglass Day, and the Black Women’s Organizing Archive.
