Tyler Vargas is working as a Research Assistant this spring to help publicize the BPL’s vast Anti-Slavery Collection to peer cultural institutions.
The Associates has issued an RFP seeking a partner to help us promote awareness of the BPL’s remarkable digital collection of anti-slavery and abolitionist materials among cultural, civic, and educational institutions around the country.
Then & Now, a celebration of Black History Month, is a public art live-stream projection honoring the words of the abolitionists from the Boston Public Library’s Anti-Slavery Collection, coupled with Artists for Humanity teen artwork.
Watch the 2020 Pierce Performance, “Giving Voice to the Abolitionists: Selected Readings from the BPL’s Anti-Slavery Collection.”
The Boston Public Library just launched an exciting new crowdsourcing project. Help us transcribe abolitionists’ correspondence and learn more about this important era in our country’s history.
