The Black History Bootcamp kicked-off on June 1st, and by the second day, 10,000 people had accepted the challenge and by day 10, more than 85,000 people signed up to learn about legendary and revolutionary Black women in history like Audre Lorde, Ella Baker, Shirly Chisholm, Georgia Gilmore and Nina Simone.
Each day (except on the weekends) participants of the Black History Bootcamp receive an email which includes reading resources, speeches and a specially curated playlist of songs dedicated to the legend who is featured, to listen to on their solo walks. At noon EST, cofounders T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison convene a conversation on the legend’s life, where thousands dial in to listen and walk in virtual solidarity. The call-in info is 1 (646) 876-9923, code: 734464325.
