Black History Everyday: Wikipedia Edit-a-thon


Please use the Pearson Street entrance after 5 pm.


About the Project

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artists Jina Valentine and Heather Hart that intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. In its 10-year existence, BLT has taken a variety of forms related to this most recent iteration, in the form of the Wikipedia edit-a-thon. BLT's aim is the production of discursive sites (at literal and metaphorical lunch tables), where cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting our communities. They endeavor to create spaces, online and off, mirroring the activity and creativity present in sites where blackness and art are performed.
