The Black Book Interactive Project is a collaborative research project that 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 race-related issues, we will correct the digital divide in black-authored texts. BBIP has been funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
