In 2018, Whose Knowledge? co-founders Adele Godoy Vrana and Siko Bouterse began a process of exploring their ancestries, beginning with retelling their own family stories in the context of race and colonization. Today, as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the US, we share these stories online as a way to mark and honor the many communities that are working to dismantle white supremacy and systemic racism in the US and around the world.
We are a global campaign to center the knowledge of marginalized communities (the majority of the world) on the internet.
Here is an update of this year's intense ride! We share news about how our team will change in the coming year, we revisit our fight against invisibility at the intersections of two global pandemics: COVID-19 and anti-Blackness, we also share some highlights of conversations and creations throughout the year, and a glimpse of out exciting plans for the future, including the upcoming State of the Internet's Languages report!
