The Robert Frederick Smith Fund at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture presents:
A Community Curation Program (CCP), a multi-state public outreach initiative created to encourage people to digitally document and share the history and culture of our African American communities to a cloud-based platform accessible to the public.
The Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, Black American West Museum and Lincoln Hills have been identified as Community Curation collaborator institutions who will work together to serve community members around Colorado wanting to have their personal materials digitized.
November 1-11, 2018, the digitization process will be open to the African American community in Colorado who want to preserve their own personal history through the sharing of stories, photographs, film, oral histories, and videos by the NMAAHC’s Digi-team.
You are invited to register to attend a free session at https://www.etix.com/ticket/v/12594, to learn how to capture oral histories, digitize photographs and film, and discover more about local African American history.
Interested participants who want to digitize their personal, organizational and familial memories and mementos, please go to https://nmaahc.si.edu/community-curation-denver to schedule an appointment with the Digi-Team at the Blair-Caldwell Library.
After the digital process is complete you will be able to upload your material to a new online NMAAHC app that allows you to share your family history with the world or you may keep your personal and family treasures private. The Blair-Caldwell Library would also be an option for preserving your curated materials at our library. Feel free to ask Librarians Terry Nelson firstname.lastname@example.org or Annie Nelson email@example.com about this option.
