Black Histories Edit-a-thon

We live in a world of information, and the knowledge we share matters: it can challenge or uphold the systemic barriers that many in our communities face. This February, we invite you to join your library in making the world of information more inclusive in the Black Histories Edit-a-thon!

Join us Feb 8, 1–2:30 p.m. EST for a kick-off panel event featuring:

Then, every Friday in February, join your library for facilitated editing sessions on Zoom: you can learn the basics or get a refresher on editing Wikipedia and Wikidata, then write alongside others who are passionate about improving digital coverage of Black histories and experiences. No prior editing experience is required.

This event is organized by U of T Libraries, York University Libraries, Toronto Metropolitan University Library, and Toronto Public Library. We look forward to seeing you!
