“Our Stories Our Knowledges”: the full series
This resource series presents some important insights into the structures of power we’re dismantling and the struggles we face in centering our knowledges online. It then offers a set of practices and tools for marginalized communities working on knowledge production, reminding us to take care of ourselves and our communities as we do so. The third resource shares what we’ve done and learned in the quest of decolonizing knowledge on Wikipedia. Finally, the fourth part provides tips and suggestions tailored for allies who want to support marginalized communities in preserving and sharing their knowledge.
