Public Workshop – Monday, October 4, 2021
Join DataWorks, NCCU School of Library & Information Sciences, the Durham County Register of Deeds, Chapel Hill Attorney, Andrew Wagner, and Tia Hall of Yinsome Group LLC for this free, online workshop.
As part of the Hacking Into History project, participants will learn about the history of racially-restrictive land use practices in Durham County. The workshop will include volunteer training to review deeds for the presence of racial covenants and the opportunity to participate in transcription work.
Much more than a transcription event or educational endeavor, this workshop approaches uncovering these “buried monuments” to white supremacy as a healing opportunity. If you have not had the opportunity to participate in this workshop before, we’d love to have you join us.
