Hi Wiki Yorkers, We invite you to join us for two events this weekend with AfroCrowd for Black WikiHistory Month.
On Saturday: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/ AfroCrowd/Schomburg_Black_Power On Sunday: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/Action=History Sign up here: https://www.meetup.com/WikimediaNYC/ ***Saturday February 25*** Improve Wikipedia articles on Black history and culture- new contributors and voices are especially encouraged to join! The Schomburg Center, working with AfroCROWD, 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 campaign. Held in coordination with the Schomburg's #BlackPower50 initiative marking the historical anniversary of the movement. For the first time, via video link, we will also unite with Wikipedia editors in Africa editing alongside us for Black History Month. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/ AfroCrowd/Schomburg_Black_Power ***Sunday February 26*** On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history. For our first monthly event, AfroCROWD will be hosting a Black WikiHistory Month workshop focused on the Wikidata project, improving metadata on African Diaspora biographies and related topics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/Action=History Thanks, Richard (User:Pharos) Wikimedia NYC
