Join us for our History Harvest on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at SAAACAM at the Historic Sutton Family Homestead!
The mission of the San Antonio African American Community Archive and Museum (SAAACAM) is to collect and preserve the shared history of African Americans in the San Antonio region. From time to time, SAAACAM facilitates History Harvest in an effort to engage the public in collecting their own personal family histories towards the creation of a more inclusive dialogue related to the contribution of African Americans in the San Antonio area.
Interested participants are encouraged to bring artifacts of relevant historical events and persons. Advance registration is requested.
Ideal items are things such as letters, family photographs, event programs and pictures, newsletters, diaries and other documents. Make every effort to know names of persons in photographs.
Items should be unique (aka no magazines, books, or other widely-published works).
Items should be no bigger than an A4 piece of paper (8.5″ x 11.7″).
Items will be scanned and returned to the owner at the time of the appointment.
Items should be two dimensional, for we will not have the ability to scan 3D artifacts or objects, audio or video tapes, or film.
We will be able to share digital versions with participants via Dropbox or Google Drive.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 210-724-3350 to tell us about your unique artifact and to possibly schedule an appointment Oct. 26th to bring your items in and tell us about them.
Please be prepared to sign a release form to accession these items into SAAACAM and/or University of North Carolina’s digital collections.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in SAAACAM’s History Harvest. This exhibit will honor veterans with a wall of honor to recognize service persons.
For more information, please contact our Board Secretary and Education Committee Chair, Mrs. Sallie Frederick, at 210-724-3350 or via email email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you then and there!
