Celebrate Black History Month with your library at the Black History Edit-a-thon! We live in a world of information, and the knowledge we share matters: it can challenge or uphold the systemic barriers that many in our communities face. This February, we invite you to join your library in making the world of information more inclusive in the Black Histories Edit-a-thon.
