Before written text, there was the oral tradition. Audio narratives that were voiced by the educated, the soothsayers, the griot, or our elders are how people learned about everything before the dawn of books. This tradition continues today. Maybe that's why our Black History Audio Books 1 & 2 apps are so popular. We did something different for the 3rd volume. For those of you who like to watch as well as listen or read, we've got you covered. Several videos are also included in Black History Audio Book 3 to support the written words and spoken stories.

    Seven years between updates? Not exactly. One of the first Android apps we published back on July 4, 2011 was Black History Expert, previously released as a Kindle book.
