Our project is now hosted on The HistoryMakers website

The goal of our project is to deliver a visual, interactive and playful web browser experience that will attract the interest of new audiences and encourage them to learn about African American history from The HistoryMakers database of more than 150000 stories from almost 3000 notable African Americans. We are exploring a variety of web technologies and designs to transform this large set of data into curated and personally relatable content for any user, delivered in a fun but also meaningful way. Our challenges are complicated further by a large size of data and desire for cross-platform compatibility. Based on our user research of the target demographic, 20-29 years old, these are the key points to address, in order to motivate users to not just engage with our experience, but also dive deeper into the HistoryMakers database afterword.
