Redefine Black

DoSomething.org

You could win an easy scholarship by calling for dictionary sites to create a more accurate, inclusive definition of the word “black.” The word is currently misdefined as things like “dirty” and “evil,” and research shows these definitions fuel real-world prejudice. Dictionary.com has made a commitment to change their outdated definition to reflect a more positive representation of the word Black. Include other dictionaries in the conversation to follow Dictionary.com's lead to update their definition of "Black." Other dictionaries you can include in your tweet: @MerriamWebster, @OxfordWords, @CollinsDict, and other popular dictionary sites (we’ll provide sample text). You’ll make an impact on racial inclusivity *and* enter to win a scholarship Sign Up to Start Applying
