Director of Digital Scholarship Services Charlotte Nunes was recently recognized with an Image Award from the Easton branch of the NAACP for her work in connection with the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium (LVEHC), a grant initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Lafayette News highlighted the award in “The Image of Community.” The article highlights several LVEHC-supported projects that Nunes helped facilitate in collaboration with the NAACP, including “a digital archival collection on Black history in Easton over the past 50 years, a Lafayette student project utilizing the collection, an ongoing oral history project on African American migration from Cuthbert, Ga., to Easton, and a now permanent exhibit at Sigal Museum called Destination: Northampton County.”

DSS is a formal partner on the LVEHC Mellon grant, which will run through June of 2021. To learn about grant opportunities open to faculty, students, librarians, and community members, visit https://sites.lafayette.edu/lvehc/proposals-and-deadlines/.
