Library of Congress Seeking Sermons, Orations for Posterity
How will future generations remember the inauguration of the country's first African American president? The Library of Congress wants to preserve the voices of the time by collecting sermons and speeches delivered during inauguration week at churches, synagogues, mosques and other secular institutions. The Library's American Folklife Center is collecting texts, audio recordings and videos. All submissions must be postmarked by Feb. 27, 2009, and must be accompanied by a signed release form and completed data form, found on the AFC Web site. For more information about the project, visit the Web site or call (202) 707-5510 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday – Friday, Eastern Standard Time.
