Martin Luther King Jr. bulletin boards can be put up in January ahead of MLK Day, and they can remain in your classroom for all of February, which is Black History Month. These bulletin boards can be made from printable templates or from poster sets. I love to see students’ work being featured in the MLK bulletin boards. Other types of Martin Luther King bulletin boards are party banners or tapestries with famous MLK quotes. I like that they save time because they come with the designs already printed.

I Have a Dream Bulletin Board: Students can add their own dream speeches to this MLK bulletin board. It comes with the writing sheets, heading, slogan, and cutouts. You can add any of these colors of border trims to it: red, yellow, green, or black.
Martin Luther King Jr. Quote bulletin board: I enjoyed being creative with this bulletin board. It showcases the famous quote ‘The time is always right to do what is right’. It includes two large clock cutouts with the word ‘right’ on it for you to choose from. You can adorn your bulletin boards with red, yellow, and green paper fans. I found these Black History Month decoration set with red, yellow, and green paper lanterns and tissue flower pompoms.
Color Themes for Martin Luther King Jr. Bulletin Boards
The color theme for MLK bullletin boards are the same for Blach History Moth colors. These colors are the warm and vivid, earthy colors: black, dark red, dark green, and deep yellow. The yellow can be switched with gold for a more regal effect. Many of the flags of African countries include these colors so maybe this could be the inspiration for these colors.
I also feel like the colors are rooted in the Rastafari religion. This religion started in Jamaica but has spread to the rest of the Caribbean and other parts of the world. Many people on my island are Rastafarians and their colors are green, gold, red, and black.
