Hi Wiki-Yorkers,

You're invited to help us improve Wikipedia articles on Black history and
culture- new contributors and voices are especially encouraged to join!

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at the New York Public
Library, working with the AfroCROWD initiative, is hosting a successor to
last year's Black Life Matters Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, to contribute to
articles on Wikipedia for the national Black WikiHistory Month outreach

Event: 'Black Life Matters' Wikipedia Edit-a-thon @ NYPL Schomburg Center
for Research in Black Culture

Date: Saturday February 6th, 2015

Address: 515 Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox Avenue) between West 135th and
136th Streets, Harlem, New York

Time: 12 noon-5 pm (drop-in any time!)

A reception will follow the event at 5 pm.

The Wikipedia training and Edit-a-thon will take place in the Aaron Douglas
Reading Room of the Jean Blackwell Hutson Research and Reference Division,
with a following reception in the Langston Hughes lobby on the first floor
of the building.

In addition to new people, we also need some volunteers to help with
hands-on training during the event!
