AfroCROWD at the Black Life Matters Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in Harlem, New York City, on February 6, 2016

Please join us for the next gathering of AfroCROWD @ Brooklyn Public Library!

The New York Black Librarians' Caucus Wikipedia Editing Seminar will focus on editing, improving and adding references and articles to Wikipedia. The focus of the event will be noted librarians, historians and other people and places in black history, but participants can write about whatever they like. The aim is to add at least one sentence to the Wiki Lexicon and make at least one reference. This is also part of the Wikimedia global One Librarian 1 Reference Project.
