Staten Island Museum: Black Lunch Table –Wikipeda Edit-a-thon II
Feb 9 @ 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Staten Island Museum: Black Lunch Table –Wikipeda Edit-a-thon II

Black Lunch Table is an ongoing collaboration between artists Heather Hart and Jina Valentine to facilitate the discussion of issues pertaining to race and culture and to create an online oral history archive of the recorded conversations. The Black Lunch Table Wikipedia Edit-a-thon mobilizes the creation and improvement of a site specific set of Wikipedia articles that pertain to the lives and works of Black artists and other relevant subjects. Black Lunch Table will teach participants to make quality contributions to Wikipedia, creating a space to train more editors of color and asking white allies to spend time focusing on subjects that may lack coverage. The artists explain, “This is ‘Radical archiving’ with the purpose of filling gaps in this highly accessed archive and the [art] historical record.” No prior knowledge of editing is required! Black Lunch Table will provide a short introduction to the platform and assistance. Bring your own laptop. Made possible by an Expanding Audiences and Cultural Participation Regrant from Staten Island Arts, with generous support from New York Community Trust, The Staten Island Foundation, the Altman Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and Time Warner.

No entry fee. Bring your own laptop computer.
