Preservation Week Activities
We are celebrating with local institutions across the country by hosting two preservation-themed events. The first will be a presentation on digital preservation of documents and photos on Monday, April 28 at 7:00 pm. The second event will be a hands-on workshop. Participants will have access to our scanning and digitizing equipment, and will be aided by our staff in learning how to use it to save and preserve family treasures. These events will be free, but are limited to the first fifteen to sign up. Call the history research center at 432-8931 and make your reservation now.
Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle
The library will host a series of four film/discussion programs around the theme Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle at the History Research Center and Library, 340 Whitehead Street, Chatham. The series is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
This month’s program, the first in the series, will be based on the film
The Abolitionists. The discussion will be led by Dr. Andrew Canady, assistant professor of history at Averett University. Dr. Thurman O. Echols, pastor of Moral Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Axton, will also be a featured participant.
