Hugh Smith, President of Quikthinking Software, this week announced the launch of two new Android apps, Black History Express and Black History Quotes Express.
Both apps gather together factual information and thought provoking anecdotes that offer a time slice into our culture. “Getting history right is the most important thing an informed citizen can do,” says Smith. He adds that these two apps are a way to “memorialize and acknowledge the past.”
Black History Express presents engaging stories about African Americans within 26 chapters ranging from art to theater and everything in between. Several hundred people are featured. A quiz game is included with the app for fun.
Black History Quotes Express offers several thousand inspiring, motivational, and reflective author quotes for readers to explore, share and enjoy.
