This woman is looking for copyright free photos of black scientists to add to wikipedia. Blog is here https://missingscifaces.blog/

Bastian wants others to help her, and has written a guide for sourcing images. A lot of material is available online, she writes, but it requires some digging. She recommends sifting through Google Images, Flickr Commons, Newspapers.com, or even approaching the researchers or their families or taking photos of female scientists at conferences.

She notes that getting copyright-free images is one problem facing the project: only public-domain images can go into a Wikipedia page, for example, via the site’s repository Wikimedia Commons.
