Museum offers free digitization for black families ...


The National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, D.C, is offering African American families free digitization services so that they can bring analog media into the digital age.

As part of The Great Migration Home Movie Project, the NMAAHC wants to partner “with individuals and organizations across the United States to preserve their important analog audiovisual media.”

16mm, Super 8, and Regular 8mm film can be digitized and then made searchable in the museum’s archives. Audio recordings and videotapes in Hi-8/8mm, MiniDV, 3/4″ U-matic, VHS, Betacam, 1″ open reel video, and 1/2″ open reel video formats will also be available for digitization.
