Product Description
This PowerPoint presentation celebrates Black History. Slides could also be printed and displayed!

For Black History Month, I included three slides discussing when and why we celebrate Black History Month.

Following are slides featuring 25 famous African Americans:

---Benjamin Banneker,
---Mary McLeod Bethune,
---George Washington Carver,
---Paul Laurence Dunbar,
---Frederick Douglass,
---WEB Dubois,
---Maya Angelou,
---Jesse Owens,
---BB King,
---Martin Luther King Jr.,
---President Obama,
---Michael Jackson,
---Louis Armstrong,
---Sojourner Truth,
---Rosa Parks,
---Jackie Robinson,
---Harriet Tubman,
---Langston Hughes,
---Malcolm X,
---Dred Scott,
---Marcus Garvey,
---A. Philip Randolph,
---Benjamin O. Davis,
---Thurgood Marshall, and
---Colin Powel
---Condeleeza Rice.

For each figure, I provided a brief biography and three graphics, usually including a commemorative stamp and a biography cover.

Following each bio slide is an inspirational quote by that person.

The last slide provides three discussion or writing prompts asking students to add to the list, expound on their interest in one particular figure, or ask a question of that person.

Slides are clear with large, plain font.
