We're building the world's largest Black American History Timeline
And growing.

Over 2,000 timeline events about every aspect of Black American history, from food & music to wars & rebellions. There is a lot to discover and understand.

Verified by experts.

Built by scholars, historians, researchers, and enthusiasts, every entry on the timeline has been approved by a community of experts to ensure all information is true and valid.

Built for understanding.

–Ünformation can often be misinterpreted when presented through a narrow lens. Each event on the timeline is intended to present a holistic view to help bring clarity and understanding to Black American history.

Tools to help you discover and learn.
