So, What's "Black in History" About?

This is a site curating the names of influential Black Americans, past & present, and giving them the recognition they deserve. Because Black History is American History.

If you want to learn more on my rationale and reasons for the site, check out my feature article interview with Tumblr. Also, you can read about my UX, visual design, and content strategy in an article I wrote for Medium.

This project has also been featured in a number of publications, including: Communication Arts, Under Consideration, Awwwards Site of the Day, The Next Web, Complex Magazine, Designworklife, W3 Awards, Web Designer Magazine,Tumblr Staff, Tumblr’s New & Notable, Tumblr’s Spotlight for History & Culture, Speckyboy, Web Design Ledger, and others.

It's also been listed as one of the "Top 10 New & Notable Tumblrs of 2013" by Yahoo (and Tumblr), and received two Webby Honoree awards for both Education & Blog-Cultural.

Be sure to  Submit names you think deserve to be on the list.  Follow @alexpierce  Follow @BlackInHistory ×
