Print the poster or let children colour their own version, read the inspiring quotes and talk about what those words mean. Ask children who inspires them most and do some more research on that historical figure, using the included template!
The Black heroes and heroines are Alexandre Dumas, Maya Angelou, Katherine Johnson, Gordon Parks, Charles Drew, Mae Jemison, Alexander Pushkin, Ella Fitzgerald, Madam C.J.Walker, Barack Obama, George Washington Carver, and Rosa Parks.
