Digitized Documents and the Road to Freedom

What do you get when a history museum and a university team up to enhance access to historic documents? Find out at this presentation by MHM Librarian Emily Jaycox and staff from Washington University’s Digital Library Services.  The Freedom Suits project draws upon MHM’s pre-1870 city directories, WU’s legal and technical expertise, and St. Louis Circuit Court Records to enhance our knowledge of the slaves who sued for their freedom, their legal representatives, and those opposing their freedom.
