The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an oral-history archiving project aimed at the production of discursive sites, wherein cultural producers engage in dialogue on a variety of critical issues. BLT animates discourse and initiates a democratic rewriting of contemporary history around and among the people living this history. BLT's Wikipedia initiative includes workshops that mobilize the collective authoring of articles pertaining to the lives and works of Black artists.

This event is hosted in partnership with the Stuart Weitzman School of Design.
