ASERL: Exploring Black Digital History

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Digital humanities, defined as the application and intersection of digital technologies with the disciplines of the humanities, offers new methods of access for intellectual inquiry. Olivia Peacock will share about her efforts to create Digital Black History, a free searchable listing of digital Black History projects that have been created by individuals and institutions. This website not only curates those projects, but also lets users use keywords to search for the appropriate resources to supplement their research. Dr. Jan Davidson (Cape Fear Museum, NC) will describe a new online map and timeline which pieces together a timeline of the events that led up to the 1898 Wilmington Massacre.
