About Black Lunch Table[edit]

Black Lunch Table (BLT)is a nonprofit organization and sixteen-year ongoing artist collaboration.BLT’s primary aim has been the production of discursive sites, wherein cultural producers engage in dialogue on a variety of critical issues.

Black Lunch Table Wikimedians mobilize the creation and improvement of a specific set of Wikipedia articles that pertain to the lives and works of Black artists. In the field of mainstream contemporary art, Black artists are still marginalized within our field.

Wikipedia estimates that 77% of their editors are white and 91% of their editors are men. Our work shifts this demographic and empowers people to write their own history. Our sessions and events, including BLT Photobooth and edit-a-thons, equip new editors with the skills and resources to create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles and encourages existing editors to focus on Wikipedia knowledge gaps.

Articles and Artists to edit[edit]

Black Lunch Table's task list is made up of Black visual artists who are under-represented on Wikipedia. We welcome additions to our list so long as they are within our scope. We encourage editors to suggest artists who do not have a page or whose page is a stub over adding an artist who already has a substantial page and presence. Please always defer to Wikipedia's NOTABILTY guidelines for new pages.
