This website is a news aggregator source for online stories on all things Black August. In 1979, Black prisoners at San Quentin state prison in California, began an annual, month-long, in-memoriam to fallen prisoners. It has since become internationally recognized.

In 2022, writers, commentators, and other such influencers, including Google Search, began to recognize Black August as a kind of second Black History Month, a Black History Month alternative for freedom fighters.
