Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 11, 2008
Black History Month is fast approaching, and many local and national festivities are already in place. Two entrepreneurs, William Moss (founder of HBCU.com) and Dante Lee (founder of BlackNews.com), have come together to launch BlackHistory.com - the first web site of its kind.
BlackHistory.com is a 100% free online encyclopedia that features information, pictures and video content about African American accomplishments. It is divided into five major categories: people, places, events, terms and organizations.
The site is also a social networking platform that allows African American visitors to chronicle their own contributions to Black History and to connect in a way like never before. Members can interact with each other and post profiles, pictures, and even history-related content.
Moss comments, "BlackHistory.com is a valuable asset to students and professionals looking to conduct research, but also to advertisers who want to show their strong support for Black History month."
After generating millions in revenue from their network of web sites, Lee and Moss were able to acquire BlackHistory.com for an undisclosed amount in September 2007, and immediately began working to transform it into a valuable resource. They then formed a new company, Lee Moss Media, as an umbrella for the site.
"We expect BlackHistory.com to be very huge, attracting millions of visitors this year," says Lee. "This is bigger than anything we've ever done."
