Explore  the historical legacy of the Reconstruction Era and Freedmen’s Bureau with a scholarly lecture by Dr. Chris Bonner, University of Maryland, College Park. This presentation will be followed by a demo of the Smithsonian Freedmen’s Bureau Transcription Project with Quinton Gregory, University of Maryland, College Park.
