DDFR Roadshow @ DC Public Library
Following a DC Public Library screening of Through A Lens Darkly, Thomas Allen Harris presented Digital Diaspora Family Reunion Roadshow and spoke about the importance of personal archiving and his involvement in the community engagement project, which collected 18,000 images from personal family archives across the USA.

Harris's lecture helped celebrate the launch of the Memory Lab, a space designed to help the public digitize and preserve videotapes, photographs and other family keepsakes. Located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, the Memory Lab features technology like scanners and VCRs along with and step-by-step instructions for saving items in a digital format.
