Exploring U.S. Black Press with the Tulane History Project
Date: Thursday, February 1st, 2024
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: HTML - 430 4th Floor Classroom
To kick off Black History Month, join Tulane University Libraries and the Tulane History Project for a hands-on workshop exploring Black Press databases. During the session, participants will become familiar with a variety of online resources to access African American news sources from the 19th and 21st centuries, then practice their skills by searching for references to Tulane University in the Black press to further contextualize the university's history with Black Americans. Workshop participants will crowdsource findings to contribute to the body of primary sources that the Tulane History Project can draw on to unearth and raise awareness about the university’s racial history.
Requirements: Please bring a laptop or other electronic device to search databases during the session.
This workshop will be: In-person only, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, Room 430
