This Black History Month, BlackFacts.com invites you to fill the minds of your loved ones, students and friends with more than gossip and negative stereotypes. Educate and inspire them with the priceless gift of knowledge and awareness of their potential!
Boston, MA — BlackFacts.com, the internet’s longest running data-driven website on the historical and cultural contributions of people of color, is introducing gift membership offering at www.blackfacts.com/gift. In the months leading up to Black History Month, BlackFacts.com is inviting the community to help educate and inform Black youth and students by giving them a gift that keeps giving back throughout the year.
• Learn about significant moments and people in Black history
• Get informed about minority business and professional achievements and inventions
• Be inspired by unique cultural products and services
• Receive inspirational quotes and speeches
• Access to historical videos, quizzes and game
All of this and more – as BlackFacts.com delivers cultural accomplishments to our members throughout the entire year. Because Black History is not just in February.
Additionally, BlackFacts.com members are able to contribute our historical and cultural archives by submitting new “Facts/Stories/Recipes” or recommend changes to existing “Facts”.
This capability follows in the tradition of African storytellers (“Griots”) who preserved the culture and history of their people – handing down that history to the next generations.
One of the primary goals of BlackFacts.com is to protect and preserve the history of our people. So much of the history of people of color has been lost over the years and educational systems are cutting back or totally removing the contributions of people of color from the standard history textbooks. In many cases, subjects like “Social Studies” which focus on diverse cultural histories have been cut from the school curriculum altogether.
All are being asked to consider sharing the wealth of knowledge and achievements with you children, students and friends.

It was developed with the tenets of Inform, Engage & Inspire. These are their goals for the visitors, contributors, sponsors and historians that enjoy the information provided on the site.
