Wa Na Wari and The Grocery are partnering with BLT to increase the visibility of Black artists from the PNW on Wikipedia.
The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an oral-history archiving project focused on the lives and work of black artists. The work of the Black Lunch Table includes oral archiving, salons, peer teaching workshops, meetups, and Wikipedia edit-a-thons. The BLT brings people together to engage in dialogues about the writing, recording, and promoting inclusive art history.] One aim of the Black Lunch Table project is to address the racial and gender bias on Wikipedia by encouraging Wikipedia articles about African American artists."
