Black Lunch Table: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Friday October 9, 1 – 4pm: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, Meetup Page

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) will host an Editing Workshop, an *online* edit-a-thon with UMBC CIRCA, on October 9th, 2020 at 1pm EST. We will learn about how to create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of Black visual artists. An introduction with a brief overview of the basics of Wikipedia editing will be given at the start of the edit-a-thon along with some context for the BLT project. We will have resources and a list of suggested artists, cultural creators, and institutions on hand. All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required.
