About Us

The First Independent Digital Magazine in the Tricities

Folks and Facts was created to fill a huge gap in our local media. The other media websites are all focused on the latest news, crimes , accidents,  and famous events.  Folks and Facts are focused on our people, talents, heroes, and in our region, exploring nice places to visit and bringing up curiosities and information that are not limited to a space of time, like latest news websites are. 

In fact, we are not an online newspaper, but a digital magazine, with contents based on topics that we carefully selected:  Our Talents, Kids, Heroes, People in Need, Exploring, Curiosities, Events,  and yes, some local and international most important news. 

Founder and Editor-in_Chief

With that in mind, Wallace Moura, Brazilian photographer and filmmaker, living in Bristol since 2012, founded Folks and Facts. An American version of one of the biggest digital magazines of the State of Rio Grande do Norte, in Brazil, also founded by him.

Why is it called INDEPENDENT ?

We want to keep Folks and Facts always independent. That means we will never be controlled by big companies or politics.  Keeping us free from those influencers will guarantee our freedom of speech. 

But we all know that being independent means we face all expenses by ourselves. So, we need your help. Donate any value, and if possible, please, make it a monthly donation.
