Smithsonian Wiki Focus: Black Women in Food History
The Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative (AWHI) and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History (NMAH) held a Wikipedia edit-a-thon on July 27th, Wiki Focus: Black Women in Food History. The event featured a discussion with LaDeva Davis, the first Black woman to host a national cooking show (PBS), who generously donated her time to talk about her experiences and offered a Q&A session. Mia Cariello (User:CarCai) an AWHI summer intern created the Wikipedia article about LaDeva Davis, which didn't exist until July 2021 despite her groundbreaking career. The editing workshop was led by Kelly Doyle (AWHI) and Andrew Lih (AWHI). The editing worklist for the event was developed by NMAH curators. This was the 20th editing workshop hosted by the AWHI. Editing and promotional support was provided by Wikimedia DC.
