Black History Bulletin Boards for Classrooms
Posters can be used to make Black History Bulletin Boards for Classrooms. The poster sets have pictures of notable black historians.
Add black history buntings to posters to complete a bulletin board: These black history buntings have a dark background that makes them blend in with the background of the bulletin board. But the letters on it are bright enough to stand out boldly. This bulletin board also has two quote posters from this black history quote of the day poster set.
Black History Month Bulletin Board Quote Posters: These posters feature Black History Month quotes. Students can bring pictures of black historical heroes to add to the bulletin board.
Freedom Isn’t Free Picture Posters: These posters do not ‘sugar-coat’ things. They show the prices that were paid by the brave to help pave the way for others. They are not bulletin boards, but I had to add them to this list.
Black Inventors Bulletin Board: Based on the photos and details in this poster, students can pick two inventors to research them, and give a report on what they learned about them.
Black Heroes Bulletin Board: I like that the teacher added this heading to this bulletin board ‘Black History Month: Celebrating the Past, Inspiring the Future’. The persons featured in these posters are Barack Obama, Harriet Tubman, Colin Powell, Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglas, Benjamin E. Mays, Martin Luther King Jr., Ida B. Wells, and Thurgood Marshall.
Notable Black Americans Bulletin Boards: All of these bulletin boards were created with these Notable Black Americans Posters. The persons in the posters are Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Mae Jemison, Harriet Tubman, Langston Hughes, Thurgood Marshall, Mary McLeod Bethune, George Washington Carver, and Frederick Douglas.
Black History Month Tapestry Bulletin Board
Turn a Black History Month Tapestry into a bulletin board: This tapestry has the fist for the black power movement, a picture of the African continent, and everything is in the red, gold, and green colors. Each color has its own symbolism; black: Melanin/Our shared identity, Yellow: Sun/Prosperity, Green: Mother Nature, and Red: Blood/History.
Black History Month Classroom Doors
Notable Black Americans Black History Classroom Door Bulletin Board: This classroom door is covered in plain bulletin board paper, and these posters.
Black History Event Posters on classroom door: These are 36 posters of Black History Events. The back of the card provides a good synopsis of each event or key historical figure. Rich discussions can be generated.
