Support and Future Plan

Please contact us. We need people to do a number of things, including advertising this effort, following up with nominated scholars, and helping with the database entries. We’ll take all the help we can get! Also, we would love additional web development support. Pretty please. Like, tell us your favorite cookies, and we’ll send you a box every week for a year. If you have any expertise in this area or know someone who does, let us know.

This is a wonderful idea, and we hope it will be an eventual outcome of this project. Our current focus is on Black scholars, but we would love to collaborate to enable better equity practices for other underrepresented groups. If you are interested in partnering, please contact us.

We hope that the database can eventually become a self-sustained effort. Right now, we are doing database entry manually, which is important but painstaking work. If we could automate this process, we could significantly expand the database. Eventually, we hope we can either identify a partner or secure funding to enable one- or two-click automation of database entry.
