An App for Black History Month

Black History Tribute profiles influential African Americans.

Black History Tribute, a free app available from the iTunes Store, is a virtual library profiling historic African Americans. It contains photos and short profiles of more than 75 influential African Americans from Michael Jackson to Malcom X; Thurgood Marshall to Malcom X; Dred Scott to Jackie Robinson. 

According to the app’s website:

"This app may seem like it was created to help people understand Black History. However, it was created to help gain an experience much deeper than that. We want to help empower any individual, no matter their race, with an ability and historic knowledge to speak life into any group or community using these examples. Black History is rich with examples of individuals who were abled to accomplished great things when the odds were stacked against them. Lets use these examples and try to motivate others with their lives."
