Join us at the Delozier Building in Clinton for a free digitization event focused on African American heritage in the Ozarks!
Presented in partnership with the Henry County Museum, archivists will be available to digitize photographs, letters, pamphlets, postcards, and other materials that speak to African American heritage in the region. Guests will be provided complimentary copies of their digital files. Attendees will also have the opportunity to record an interview with an oral historian about their items, community history, and genealogy.
Past digitization events in Rolla, Diamond, and West Plains have resulted in more than 450 items digitized on behalf of Missourians.
The event begins at 10 a.m. on October 8 at the Delozier Building, 203 W Franklin Street, Clinton, MO 64735. Residents of Henry, Bates, Benton, St. Clair, Morgan, Cedar, Hickory, Polk, and Vernon counties, as well as points throughout the northwestern Ozarks, are invited. The event is free, but registration is required.
