Black Women’s Digital Archives: 100 Sites Created By For and About Black Women

 

I believe in the power of Black women’s digital archives because of the ways in which we use the internet to create, promote and distribute images of ourselves that we cannot find in mainstream media.

In many ways I see the digital archives and created by Black women and Women of color as an act of resistance. Thank you Al Gore and Arpa.

To this end, I created a list of 100+ sites by for and about Black women, along with meta tags. Why would I do such a thing? I know that the internet is ephermal, that is really easy to lose a site. For me, this list is digital proof that we exist(ed).

If you like the list, please, share, rt and reblog:) ~Renina
