Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Women + People of Color
Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The University of Delaware History Media Center, The Colored Conventions Project, The University of Delaware Library, and the Graduate Student Senate Diversity Committee are organizing a "Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Women + People of Color" at the University of Delaware on Saturday, April 26.
The Edit-a-thon is open to all and will be preceded by an "Intro to Wikipedia Editing" Workshop.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own interests and data for entry in Wikipedia. Attendees who do not bring data of their own are invited to use the biographical and other information resources gathered by the Colored Conventions project, which covers a neglected, critical period of African-American history. The biographical information about historically important men and women of color could help to fill the current deficit of such information on Wikipedia.
Attendees are welcome to come for just the Workshop or for any part of the Edit-a-thon.
11:00 AM - Intro to Wikipedia Editing Workshop
