BET Partners with Foursquare for Black History Month

In celebration of Black History Month, cable network BET has connected with Foursquare to map 100 places of historical significance in African-American history.

All year long, visitors can check into landmarks like the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. or the African American Art & Culture Center in San Francisco to unlock the “Say it Loud” badge.

To participate, just follow BET on Foursquare. The cable network will display check-ins that are marked with the hashag #BETBHM on a geo-location enabled map. If your favorite spot is not on the list, submit it here.
