- The Overview
In 2010, I pondered on the idea in creating The Black American Glossary based on a visualization of Black History Month and the individuals represented within it. Ultimately, the purpose of this site is to emphasize the importance of a history typically only acknowledged during the month of February.
What was a passion project at first slowly evolved into of an ‘informational blog’ of sorts. I first began creating individually separate sites for some of the historical individuals represented on this site. I also wanted to give each individual on this site their own identity the way people would envision them during their lifetime.
Upon studying their historical presence upon the world, I felt it was only right to present them in a way that was both distinguishable and different to other biographical resources available today.
