Ken Granderson

Digital Visionary, Pioneer and Entrepreneur

Ken is a Digital Visionary and Pioneer who launched Blackfacts.com (the Internet's first Black History Encyclopedia) in 1997, put his former community of Roxbury online in 2002, and created the web site for the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia in 2013.

His 25-year commitment to build cutting-edge technologies to benefit communities of color has resulted in him building online systems decades ahead of their time, and today the platform he architected for Blackfacts, called the Wakanda Technology Platform, is positioned to become a leading provider of Global Black News and other services, and the only such platform created by a Black person.

Ken's Digital Archive of news stories, videos and presentations is at http://kengranderson.com
