The Call My Name Coalition will host “Documenting Your Family Story,” providing a free opportunity for the public to have materials on African-American history preserved in digital form. People who have memorabilia relating to African-American life in Clemson are invited to bring those materials – newspapers, letters and other artifacts — for digital preservation. The materials and scanned copies will be returned to the people participating. The event takes place 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23 at the Madren Center in Clemson; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 24 at the West End Zone at Clemson Memorial Stadium.
The digitization events are made possible by a National Endowment for the Humanities “Common Heritage” grant.
