BLACK LUNCH TABLE: WIKI EDIT-A-THON, PHOTO BOOTH, AND ROUNDTABLE SERIES
Join us the weekend of May 20th for programming with Black Lunch Table, an oral-history archiving project that creates space for people, art, Black studies, and social justice issues.
Things kick off with the Wiki Edit-a-thon on Friday, May 19th from 5 pm to 8 pm. Bring your laptop and learn how to create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of visual artists and underrepresented Black artists.
On Saturday, May 20th, join us for the Photobooth and Roundtable series. Organized around literal and metaphorical lunch tables, Black Lunch Table takes the lunchroom phenomenon as its starting point.
The Artists Roundtable (11 am to 1 pm), BLT’s founding initiative, invites Black artists from Chattanooga’s local communities to engage in dialogue with one another. At the People’s Table (1 pm to 3 pm), Chattanooga community members will participate in conversation around site-specific sociopolitical issues affecting historically disenfranchised populations. All are welcome to the Photo Booth (beginning at noon), where you can have your portrait made by a local photographer for the Wiki Commons. Please register as spaces for the roundtables and lunch are limited.
