CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Abolitionist Abraham Galloway has no Wikipedia page, while the one for Rep. Eva Clayton needs more verification.

The North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Sunday hopes to remedy these and other issues involving the online encyclopedia with its second “Edit-a-thon” focusing on African-American history in North Carolina.

Anyone with a laptop can participate in the edit-a-thon, which will take place in room 504 of Wilson Library on campus. The school hopes to create and improve Wikipedia articles about blacks and black history in North Carolina. Specialized knowledge isn’t required as library resources and a list of suggested topics will be available.

Editors also can participate remotely.
