Use the posters to decorate the room with portraits of amazing Black people from history – Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Jesse Owen, Mae Jemison, Barack Obama and more! Better yet, have your students create their own versions by colouring the black-and-white pages or using the make-your-own template.
