Black History Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon: Kick-off
This session will occur online and is facilitated by the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. It is part of the library's ongoing Black History Month Wikipedia-Edit-a-Thon.
In order to mark Black History month in 2021, 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.
We will hear from poet, journalist, and activist El Jones and dancer and educator Tyrell Black.
Note: This event is open to the public.
Zoom link will be sent to registrants.
