Black History: Guess Who Game is a printable educational game that features inspiring people who have changed the world while often working against racial prejudice. They are scientists, explorers, artists, activists, and more. They come from different social classes and from different parts of the world. What unites them here is that each of them did something extraordinary—and they worked hard to get there.
This game was made:
- to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of people of African descent
- to bring awareness to the struggles that they have faced through centuries of racial prejudice
- to tell about some inspiring firsts (did you know who was the first female self-made millionaire in the USA? who won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics? )
- to touch on some interesting social history facts (unfortunately, many of them involving examples of racial mistreatment)
- to encourage players’ interest in learning more—and if they do, there are blank cards in the end of the game, so that they could add more characters!
Black History: Guess Who Game features:
- twenty inspiring Black people, such as Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Jesse Owen, Mae Jemison, Barack Obama, and more
- forty double-sided character cards, each featuring a full-height illustration of those mighty people along with some of their notable accomplishments
- twenty biography cards, each featuring an illustration, a quotation, a short biography, and a timeline of the most important events and accomplishments in their lives
- blank templates to make your own cards or complete research on more amazing people from Black history
- rules for a two-player game (no classroom rules or posters are included – you can find them in this full version)
We hope you will enjoy this game!
