"Letter" History Be Known

A research activity to get your students to better understand the influence that Black Americans have had on the betterment of our country.

In this activity, students will take a look at 26 influential Black Americans and decide which of these historical figures they would like to learn more about. They will then do the research and create an informational poster or art piece to teach others about what they learned.

Teacher TipHave students use this resource in "present" mode. This makes navigating the links much easier! Also, if you are looking for a different option than Wikipedia, try these for Claudia Gordon, Dorothy Pitman Hughes, and Michelle Obama .
