Subcategories for Category:African-American culture?Edit

Should Wikipedia have subcategories for Category:African-American culture for specific states? Feedback welcome here. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:31, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

Thoughtful rhetoricEdit

I am not sure that this is the right place. And, I know that I should have reached out to someone before this, but I write a fair number of articles about slavery, lives of freed people during the 18th or 19th century, and abolitionism - and I have been changing terminology based upon edits that I see. It would be great to know - if there is a good guide for better ways to word people or practices (recent: enslavers instead of masters).

Or perhaps taking a look at Slavery at Tuckahoe plantation (in progress) or Underground Railroad in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (that I would like to expand).

I would be happy to trade it for editing, starting a new article, etc. If there's a better place to ask this question or a reference document, that would be great, as well!–CaroleHenson (talk) 22:09, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Request for assessment of article's class ratingEdit

Hello, would anyone be able to assess the new article 'Afro-Caribbean Music'? I wrote it for my university class and would love some feedback and assistance if possible? Thank you, Ddra5202 (talk) 00:32, 25 May 2021 (UTC)
