eBlack Studies, Digital Preservation
Sponsored by the African-American Studies Department @ the University of Illinois Urbana, the "eBlack Studies Manifesto" defines eBlack studies as "the ongoing application of current digital information technology towards the production, dissemination, and collection of historical knowledge critical to the discipline of Black Studies and to the overall black experience." The authors also outline nine imperatives to guide and grow the discipline.
