“Reveal Digital: SNCC, Highlander and the Civil Rights Movement”: A Special Webinar for Librarians

Librarian friends: I’ve talked about my underground press digital project. That’s only one of the digital collections I’m creating through REVEAL DIGITAL.

Please join us on October 8, 2014 from 1 -2 p.m. eastern time when LYRASIS will host a special webinar, “Reveal Digital: SNCC, Highlander and the Civil Rights Movement.”

Special guest Julian Bond will reflect on his participation in the struggle for civil rights during his time with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).  REVEAL DIGITAL founder and visionary Jeff Moyer will introduce participants to two other potential civil rights-themed digitization projects that, with your support, will become open access, like the underground press collection: the SNCC Digital Archives and the Highlander Center Digital Archives from their founding in the thirties through the Civil Rights era.

Don’t miss it, and please invite other librarian friends who understand the importance of what these organizations accomplished to participate as well. Registration is here.
