Welcome to AfroCROWD

Catch up & connect with AfroCROWD 
the initiative to increase awareness of the Wikimedia and free knowledge, culture, and software movements among potential editors of African descent!

Afro Free Culture Crowdsourcing Wikimedia (AfroCROWD) is an outreach initiative which seeks to increase awareness of the Wikimedia and free knowledge, culture, and software movements among potential editors of African descent. Since its launch during Black Wiki History Month in 2015, AfroCROWD has sensitized thousands in its target audience about free culture crowdsourcing and the need to close the multicultural and gender gaps in Wikipedia. AfroCROWD has also held monthly multilingual edit-a-thons in partnership with cultural institutions, galleries, libraries, archives, museums (GLAM) and many others. 

Join us for an upcoming event or edit-a-thon where you can learn to edit Wikipedia or improve your editing skills while you meet new people and literally #MakeHistory.
