During the closing session of WikiCon Brasil 2022, the audience were surprised by one of the first decolonial GLAM partnerships of the Wiki Movimento Brasil (WMB), signed in-person by Valério Mello and Diana Souza from the Rede de Historiadoras Negras e Historiadores Negros (Black Historians Network).
RHN is a Brazilian collective that aims to:
Create a on-wiki Open Digital Repository of the academic production of Black Historians;
Create Wikipedia articles about Brazilian black personalities and other people who played a leading role in historical events and processes;
Add many Wikiquotes of Brazilian black researchers and great personalities, books, films and proverbs.
This in-person signature represents not only our desire of having many more partnerships in favor of diversity on Brazilian Wiki, but also our hope about the future. We wish that from now on we can once again have many opportunities to meet the community in person to fraternize, sign partnerships and think about projects.
