Sharece Blakney will be attending the Mellon Scholars summer workshop at the Library Company of Philadelphia. This is a professional development program to help students prepare for graduate study and independent research in early African-American history archival collections.

The program will include cv-building, research lectures, and training on creating competitive applications for doctoral programs. Activities will also include mentoring and networking with African-American history scholars and an introduction to the Library Company’s African Americana collection and other area repositories.
