Alex Pierce: Black In History

Designer Alex Pierce has taken on the ambitious challenge of developing Black In History, a site that curates the names of influential Black Americans, “in honor, or in spite” of Black History Month (which was in February.) Alex describes the site’s purpose as such: “This is a site curating the names of influential Black Americans, past & present, and giving them the recognition they deserve. Because Black History is American History.” Well said.

Not only is the site well-designed and easy to browse, but it explores an important topic that I know we all could stand to learn more about. For a more insight into the site’s purpose, check out this feature interview with Tumblr. It’s about time someone took this on.
