Announcing AfroCROWD UK!

AfroCROWD will now be expanding to the United Kingdom. London-based Kelly Foster, Wikimedia UK’s Wikipedian of the Year, will head the initiative. Much like we do in New York-based AfroCROWD, Kelly will organize edit-a-thons in the London area focused on increasing the number of people of African descent who edit Wikipedia and actively partake in the Wikimedia and free knowledge, culture and software movements. 

We got a chance to spend some time with Kelly at the Wikimania and WikiConference North America conferences in Montreal over the summer and let's just say we are looking forward to awesome things ahead. Stay tuned for more from Kelly in the coming months.
