The Black Book Interactive Project (BBIP)

Black Book Interactive Project: Diversifying the Humanities banner logo

The Black Book Interactive Project (BBIP) seeks to increase the number of Black-authored texts in the study of digital humanities. By generating a metadata schema that accounts for race and difference, BBIP addresses the digital divide in Black-authored texts. BBIP has been funded by the University of Kansas, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), and the Andrew Mellon Foundation.
