Black History Fun Fact Friday was a new element of The PBS Blog that first began as a desire to highlight certain aspects of black history per Black History Month three years ago (2015). I discontinued the series for my inability to keep up with it and to, therefore, stay consistent. Though publishing one post every week, this segment takes up a lot of time as it requires lots of research (sometimes requiring me to read whole books first, and double check facts.) To make a long story short, I couldn’t produce articles on a consistent and weekly basis. As a result, I created this page to help those new to this blog to stay updated on all of the Black History posts from that time.
As of Friday, October 28, 2016, I re-launched Black History Fun Fact Friday, which now includes a new badge:
I will continue in the same way as before. Black History articles covering a wide range of historical facts (to include black biblical history) will be published to this blog every Friday (time permitting), and the links will appear here so you can always come back and reference them. Below are the articles I wrote so far going back to 2015. The earlier articles did not go as in depth but as we get closer to 2018 you’ll see that I have begun to dig deeper and to include more information. You can find the newer posts are in their respective years. If you find certain links don’t work, the article may have been reblogged and the link has not been updated. Please use the contact form on this blog to let me know or simply comment below so I can update the links to any articles that are not linking back properly.
