New Transcription Project: Anti-Slavery Manuscripts


January 23rd is #HandwritingDay — to celebrate, you can try out our newest transcription project, Anti-Slavery Manuscripts at the Boston Public Library!

In this project, we’re asking our volunteers to help transcribe Boston Public Library’s extensive collection of handwritten correspondence between anti-slavery activists in the 19th century into texts that can be more easily read and researched by students, teachers, historians, and big data applications.

You can get involved now at

Thanks for your help!
