Black Histories Wikipedia/Wikidata Edit-A-Thon

Black Histories Edit-A-Thon is now in its fourth year! This February for Black History Month, join us to improve coverage of Black histories on Wikipedia and Wikidata! No prior editing experience is required.

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 learn and write alongside others who are passionate about improving digital coverage of Black histories and experiences. 

Register for the kick-off event and weekly editing sessions. (This is a multi-institution event -- Please register through Eventbrite and not through libcal.) You can also join the event and edit at your own pace throughout the month.

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