BHMD was originally designed as a social media community page on Facebook with videos on YouTube. The idea was simple, make history fast and fun. If you have 90 seconds then you have enough time to watch. Think of it as the "Cliff Notes" for the digital age. So much of our history is not in schools, but with BHMD we put Black history in the palm of your hand.

Legendary filmmaker and Producer Neema Barnette (Civil Brand, Queen Sugar), teams up with her husband Reed R. McCants also an award-winning filmmaker (Cuttin’ Da Mustard) to bring his unique style of storytelling, chronicling the many achievements of people of African descent. The series was an official selection of the Newark Black Film Festival, Texas Black Film Festival and the African American Women In Cinema Festival. The mini docs have also screened in between every film at the Pan African International Film Festival for the past three years.
