Black History Month Celebrated: Week 2 Roundup

Chantilly Jaggernauth is a senior data analyst at Comcast, a telecommunications conglomerate based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In this post, Chantilly gives a recap of the second week celebrating Black History Month through data visualization.

We have successfully completed the second week of our Black History Month #VisualizeDiversity initiative and the support throughout the community has been tremendous. This week we were challenged by Cole Knaflic to thoughtfully use colors and words to create a visualization centered on Education. The visualizations created were amazing and ranged from highlights on the education gap to insight into historically black colleges and universities (HBCU).

This week, Mike Cisneros did an incredible job of highlighting the quality-per-tuition-dollar of attending two well-known HBCUs, Spelman College and Howard University. Through the use of color, words, and annotations Mike visualized the quality of education for these institutions compared to others in the United States.

In addition to posting images and links, many individuals that participated in this week’s #SWDchallenge provided commentary on the creation of their visualization. Cole did an amazing job of compiling all of the participant submissions along with the associated pictures, links and commentary. Click here to see all of this content on Cole's blog.

During the third week we will focus on women in politics. Chloe Tseng’s Viz for Social Good has partnered with Pollicy, a civic technology organization based in Kampala, Uganda. They are encouraging participants to create a visualization that celebrates the achievements of women and highlights potential opportunities to increase diversity in politics.
