"Each new Black Fact Of The Day keeps our team inspired and in complete awe."
BOSTON, MA, March 17, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The first day of Women's History Month 2021 marked the launch of the Black Fact Of The Day™ podcast, a daily digest of audio stories recalling remarkable African American women who made history and changed the course of history. From Ida B. Wells who, although born into slavery, went onto become an investigative journalist and co-found the NAACP, to unstoppable voting rights advocate Fannie Lou Hamer, to the first Black woman to win an Olympic gold medal Alice Coachman Davis, to the resilience of Claudette Colvin and Rosa Parks who both defied Jim Crow transportation bias and launch a movement and more, Black women continue to make history. Actually, Black history has been made every day of the calendar year. The website BlackFacts.com is the source for both Black women's history and African American history—thus, American history—on a daily basis. These facts are now available as a podcast across all available platforms.
