Statement of principles

Acknowledgment of Principles

Our principles are inspired by the Black digital humanities work of Dr. P. Gabrielle Foreman and her collaborators on the Colored Conventions: Bringing Nineteenth-Century Black Organizing to Digital Life. Forman’s award-winning digital project has served as an important model for us. In turn, the Colored Convention Project Principles were inspired by the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing created at the Working Group Meeting on Globalization and Trade in Jemez, New Mexico, on December 8, 1996.
