Join us for a Wikipedia learn-to-edit-a-thon and oral history capture focused on curating the history of civil rights and social justice movements in Detroit through firsthand and researched accounts. Afro Free-Culture Crowdsourcing Wikimedia (AfroCROWD) and the Radical, Libraries, Archives and Museums track (RadLAM) invite participants to share testimonies at an oral history listening Station, or get trained on how to add and edit articles on Wikipedia. Wikipedia coaches and members of RadLAM will be on-hand to help.
