The Colored Conventions Project (CCP)and Penn Price Lab present a series of workshops on Black data. Building on the work of the CCP, together we will explore methods for creating, curating, and sharing data in pursuit of racial and social justice. We hope to expand the Black digital community in and around Philadelphia. No tech experience is needed.
