Third International Blog Against Racism Week

For 2008, IBARW will take place between August 4 through August 10.

If you would like to participate, here's what to do:

  1. Announce the week in your blog.

  2. If you use a blogging system that allows post icons/pictures, switch your default icon to either an official IBARW icon, or one which you feel is appropriate. To get an official IBARW icon, you may modify one of yours yourself or ask someone to do so. Here's a roundup of IBARW icons.

  3. Post about race and/or racism: in media, in life, in the news, personal experiences, writing characters of color, portrayals of race in fiction, review a book on the subject, etc. The optional theme this year is intersectionality.

  4. Comment on the daily links roundup post at the IBARW LJ community or tag your post at delicious.com with "for:ibarw" with your post's URL, title, and tag suggestions for it to be included in link compilations.

For inspiration, here are the previous years' IBARW posts and last year's People of Color in SF Carnival: IBARW edition, which includes a history of the event and recommended posts. You can also check out this post or delicioused recommended reading for further resources.
