For 2009, IBARW will take place between July 27 to August 2
IBARW collects links to participating posts during the week; we try to get posts from people who blog about racism all year round and from people who habitually blog about other topics. As with rydra_wong
's link spam
, all posts regardless of content are linked to, so there may be fail appearing. If you discuss IBARW in your post and do not want it to be linked to, please mention it in the post and we will respect your wishes.
How to participate:
- Announce the week in your blog.
- 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. (Linking back here is highly appreciated!) The optional theme this year is "global."
- Let us know by bookmarking your post on Delicious with "for:ibarw," or comment with a link to your post in one of the link collecting posts.
For inspiration, here are the previous years' IBARW posts
and last year's POC in SF Carnival IBARW edition
. You can also check out this post

We'll be compiling links for IBARW4 as well, both in the IBARW Delicious account and with daily round-ups on this journal. The daily round-up post for Monday, July 27 is here
And for the first time, we will have autoposting from Delicious to here! Yay, and many thanks to kate_nepveu
