On April 3, Black Lunch Table is hosting a BLT Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon from 12 to 3 pm (EST), training participants to make quality contributions to Wikipedia and focusing on Black artists hailing from or living in the Buffalo metropolitan area. The purpose of this radical archiving is to fill gaps in this highly accessed archive and in the larger (art) historical record. This is a hybrid event: if you would like to participate from home, we will be meeting virtually. If you prefer to meet in-person, the Frank E. Merriweather, Jr. Branch Library will provide computer stations for this event.
Please register online. Please note in the registration if you will be attending virtually or in-person, as we have limited in-person options available.
About Black Lunch Table
Black Lunch Table (BLT) is a collaborative art project founded by artists Heather Hart and Jina Valentine that aims to fill gaps in the documentation of contemporary art history. The primary aim of this oral-history archiving project is the production of spaces for cultural producers and community members to engage in dialogue on a variety of critical issues. Organized around literal and metaphorical lunch tables, BLT takes the lunchroom phenomenon as its starting point. You are welcome to join roundtable sessions designed to provide space and time for important discussions, bringing together diverse groups of people that foster candid conversations.
