Covid Black partnership

COVID Black (Purdue University), a Black Digital Humanities (Black DH) collective and an early response taskforce on Black health and data and the Digital Justice Lab (part of Dartmouth’s Digital Humanities and Social Engagement Cluster) are pleased to announce a strategic collaboration to develop several small-scale digital projects that will address Black communities impacted by COVID-19. By connecting COVID Black’s expertise in theories and methods around data and the Black lived experience with the Digital Justice Lab’s expertise in computational tools, the collaboration represents a progressive and community-centered means for effecting positive change in how Black health data is collected and disseminated. We hope that the joint-effort between COVID Black and the Digital Justice Lab will serve as a model for other cross-organizational collaborations around a shared vision and common goals.
