Common Good, the U.Va. Library, and WikiDC are hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon about Black Stories and UVA, on Wednesday, November 4th from 9am to 5pm.
(For more information about the Common Good Edit-a-thon, read the article in The Cavalier Daily.)
We’re using Wikipedia as a platform to feature more information about people of color that have a relationship with the University of Virginia. This includes everything from not only editing existing pages to also creating pages for people, events, and topics that don’t currently exist in Wikipedia. There are a lot of options, a lot to do with this subject, and we’d love to have anyone join us on Wednesday, November 4th from 9am to 5pm in the auditorium of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.
Register online for either the entire day or just an hour! We’ll provide breakfast and lunch for registered attendees.
