Archiving the Black Web, a national forum which was co-developed by Makiba Foster, a librarian at The College of Wooster, has been awarded a $2.5 million grant from the Mellon Foundation to develop a training program in web archiving. The program will be aimed at memory workers collecting archival content documenting Black life, history and culture. The college says the project will also undertake a research initiative with the goals of mapping, describing and getting a better understanding of how Black people use digital communication technologies.
