Enhancing the Narrative of DC Public Schools: A Wikipedia Editing Workshop

Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives

Join us at Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives and help to improve and create Wikipedia articles about the history of public education in the District of Columbia. We will focus on editing articles about women who made significant contributions to DC public schools as well as articles about DC schools named for women.

No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary, as training will be provided. Reference materials from the Sumner Archives will be readily available.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Lunch will be provided.

Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing


Rescheduled to: Saturday, February 15, 2020 10AM-1PM
