one image at a time.
In collaboration with Behance and AfroCROWD, we are inviting artists from diverse backgrounds to illustrate scientists, activists, poets, and pioneers who are not visually represented on Wikipedia. Their images are either missing from history entirely, or they are locked behind restrictive paywalls and licenses. We will release each new artwork here, on the Wiki Unseen gallery, all throughout Black History Month and beyond.
With the support of our volunteers, we aim to share these new images on Wikipedia, making them available for everyone, everywhere. Because that is what free knowledge is about. Learn how you can become part of this initiative.
