The Memory Lab officially launches today! Take a tour of our latest DIY space where you can digitize your home movies, scan photographs and slides, and learn how to care for your physical and digital family heirlooms.
Tours will last 20 minutes and will begin at the following times:
To learn why personal archiving is important for Black History, come to a free screening of the film “Through a Lens Darkly” at 2:00 p.m. in the Great Hall. Following the screening, Director Thomas Allen Harris will speak about how Black family archives shed light on people, places, events, and stories that have rarely been told outside of the immediate circle of families and scholars.”
