    Hi Nicole,

    Last year (my first year)I did a bulletin board titled Africa's Finest. I included portraits of both African(Nelson Mendela, Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah, I can't recall her name but the first woman president of Liberia, Hailee Selasee, etc.) and African-Americans(King, Fannie Lou Hamer, Geroge Washington Carver, Malcolm X, Frederick Douglass,Madame C.J Walker, Carter G. Woodson, etc..) and included a brief bio of each one. I picked about 14. Now, outside of the display, everyday I talked briefly about each of the people featured outside in our display, just in case anyone asked,my kids would have an answer. I also made sure during read aloud, I read books written by african-americans or read something that occured during slavery.I did this for the whole month. This is something I do for every major celebration(women's history month, Puerto Rican Heritage, St. Patrick's Day, Presidents' Day, etc..). I hope I've helped.Good Luck.
