Black History Matters, Black Life Matters  

Celebrate Black History Month by contributing knowledge about local and national figures on Wikipedia and improving the visibility of black historical figures.  On February 18th the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library will host its first Black History Month Edit-a-Thon, an event designed to improve Wikipedia articles related to black history.  Wikipedia is one of the most visited websites in the world, and it depends on its users to contribute content.  

--Bring yourself--and a laptop, if you've got one. Or you can use one of our computers.
--No previous Wikipedia editing experience needed.
--Come hungry! We'll have pizza and soda on hand.

Archivists and librarians will be there to help you make Wikipedia better.
