are looking for several categories of contributors to join our effort.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
to join in the effort.
Please note that you do not have to join us to contribute in any of
the ways listed below. We are pleased to accept assistance of any form.
Research Assistants: people who will submit names, links, articles,
etc., that are pertinent to the content of our site. We are also encouraging
teachers, college instructors and university professors to initiate
people who will write brief biographies on individuals and submit them
to us. The biographies should be short enough to fit on to one page
in the site (approx. 15 to 30 lines). We encourage teachers, college
instructors and university professors to initiate class projects.
Fact Checkers: people who will check and verify the content
of any articles we produce, before they are posted to our web site.
These would be people with superior knowledge of black history and current
affairs. Initially we are simply providing links to other web sites
where information can be found. Eventually, we would like to have brief
biographies written about as many people as possible, with links to
other sites that contain information about those people.
Sponsors: people and companies who will provide donations, free
or discounted services, and material such as software or equipment.
Advertisers: companies who will pay to advertise on our site.
These funds will go towards the development and running of the site.
We intend to keep the advertising on the main pages of the site very
limited to ensure that we maintain the original intent of our effort;
to "educate ourselves about ourselves" and to "provide
black role models for black youths". Most of the advertising will
be contained on a page dedicated to advertising.
