BlackFacts.com believes in the power of telling our stories from our perspective. In today's partisan political environment, it is important to focus on what is important to us. It is with this goal in mind that BlackFacts.com began cataloging news stories that we felt were important to our audience.

Utilizing our proprietary AI-aware Timbuktu™ Content Management Engine, originally designed to link historical content, BlackFacts is cross-referencing that news, confirming the source and indexing it with other content in our environment. Finally, we categorized it to make sure that the news is accessible and searchable by region with an initial focus on news from the USA, Africa, the UK and the Caribbean; expect to see this expand beyond those areas once more content sources are reviewed and approved.

Anyone interested in “Black News” - not just from America but from around the globe - is invited to checkout Wakanda News at www.blackfacts.com/news.
