Thanks for checking out our fundraiser page. We are building an exciting new resource: The world's largest searchable Black history timeline!
With this free-to-use website built by scholars, researchers, and enthusiasts nationwide, you can search any black history topic and our innovative technology will show you a custom timeline of events that shaped that topic. So far, we’ve curated over 2k events going back to over 300k years ago. We're helping thousands of teachers and students discover perspective-shifting historical events that reshape their understanding of the story of Black Americans.
OUR MISSION: To be the central source of verified information about Black American history in totality, make it easily searchable and understandable, and educate Americans about Black American History.
Right now, it is hard for the average person to holistically understand the story of Black Americans because the information is so fragmented. Not only that, it is often reduced to a narrow set of topics, such as slavery, civil rights, and Black achievements - and in many cases, totally erased from mainstream education and media. This makes it difficult to understand the full picture and such siloed information limits perspective. This knowledge gap limits our understanding of each other, perpetuates misconceptions, and reinforces negative stereotypes which can lead to limited opportunities for Black Americans. We are showing the interconnectedness of many subjects, helping put it all into perspective.
