On October 6, 2012, I had the opportunity to speak at the Humanities & Technology Conference at Bowie State University in Bowie, Maryland about my work with the Paul Henderson Photograph Collection. The collection consists of over 6,000 large format negatives and a few hundred prints of Civil Rights Era Baltimore. Most of the photos depict unidentified people so the main goal of the project was to make the collection available for public use (research) as well as create positive images of each negative under a tight budget in order to begin the identification process. After processing was complete, I had the opportunity to curate an exhibition of Henderson's work as well as plan an accompanying program about Maryland's role in the struggle for civil rights. The video at the end of the presentation was something I created for the Henderson Photographs blog (http://hendersonphotos.wordpress.com).
