Join the Black History Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Join us online and participate in editing and improving Black History content and representation on Wikipedia.

The University of Toronto Libraries, in collaboration with key community partners, is planning a month-long series of events to improve the quality of Black history pages in Wikipedia. To kick off the event, we are holding a facilitated roundtable on the topic of remediating the historical record through public history initiatives and shared open knowledge.

Get an introduction to editing Wikipedia and editing workflows, join us for the Kick-Off event, and register for an 'edit together' drop-in session this February!

See the event page on Wikipedia for details on event structure, how-to, tasks, and resources.

The U of T Libraries would like to acknowledge the following community partners in this Black History Wikipedia editing effort:
