Black History Month is a time to commemorate African-Americans
who have changed the world. Celebrating Black History began in 1926, when Dr.
Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard Ph.D., initiated "Negro History Week" Dr. Woodson, a historian, chose the second week in February
because it included the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, the Bicentennial (200th birthday) of
the week-long observance was extended to the entire month of February in order to have enough time for celebratory programs
Your assignment is to create a poster on one famous/accomplished
African-American whose actions have changed the world. Research your person to
find 10 interesting facts. Then create a poster (or use my template) to hang
in the hallway that displays these important and interesting facts. Put your
name and your person’s name on the back of the poster. The poster must
be titled WHO AM I? Facts should start from the least known information
and end with clues that will help the reader guess whom you are talking about.
To receive an A+ on this poster,
it must be neat, colorful, and attractive, in addition to conforming to the directions given and to being submitted on time.
