Is your content appropriate for children?

Our content is suitable for children. The Black History Facts app is designed to engage learners of all ages. The Learn Our History newsletter is tailored to readers with greater literary understanding, but remains appropriate for teenagers and adults.

How do you carry out your research?

Here at Learn Our History we are constantly researching Black history. We have a catalogue of topics that we are always updating. Only once we have done a considerable amount of research on a particular topic do we start to construct an article on it. Articles are designed to be easy-to-read and to provide you with as much information as possible in a concise manner.

Can I share your content online?

Yes, you can. In fact we encourage it! We just ask that you share a link to our newsletter and/or articles, and not copy and paste our content and pass it off as your own.
