Product Description

Do something for Black History Month that your students won’t soon forget - with my large, visually-engaging Famous Faces® of Black History collaboration poster (Volume 2). This fun, collaborative activity features 8 inspirational famous persons: Katherine Johnson, Sojourner Truth, Jesse Owens, Shirley Chisholm, Frederick Douglass, Maya Angelou, Booker T. Washington, and Serena Williams. Great for ANY grade PreK - High School!!!


I have a companion Volume 1 featuring 8 additional inspirational figures from Black History. Volume 1 and Volume 2 can be combined to create a single banner that is 14 feet long! This makes for a visually-inspiring, large classroom or school hallway presentation. The combined product is available here at substantial savings over Volumes 1 and 2 sold individually.


My collaboration posters are easy for teachers and fun for kids and make a lasting impression—on students, parents and your entire school community! Large and visually striking, this poster is the perfect accompaniment to your social studies lessons and Black History Month celebrations and makes for a great display in the front office, the auditorium, a hallway, or your classroom bulletin board. No matter where it ends up hanging, it will engender unending compliments while proving a source of inspiration to your students and school community.

Famous Persons Featured

Some of the individual famous people on this poster is also available as it’s own poster. You can see them individually by clicking on the names below. Those in black are currently only available on this poster.

• Katherine Johnson

• Sojourner Truth

• Jesse Owens

• Shirley Chisholm

• Frederick Douglass

• Maya Angelou

• Booker T. Washington

• Serena Williams

The collaboration of this Black History Month poster makes such an impact without really having to say anything - every single piece of the poster matters - just as every child in the class matters. Your students will walk by and say "I did that piece" each time they see the poster. They take great pride in being part of this art project.

Differentiation is built into the design of this Black History Month poster. Some pages have more to color than others so some kids will easily be able to color two pages. Other pages have a lot of little details to color. You can use this to differentiate and provide the appropriate experience for each child to achieve success and be part of the group.

Famous Faces® of Black History Poster Volume 2 Details:

• There are 3 rows and 12 columns for a total of 36 pieces.

• The final poster is approx. 21” x 84” when complete. The exact size will depend on your printer settings.

• This Black History Month poster is ideal for a large bulletin board or a hallway.

• Each poster piece fits on a normal 8.5” x 11” piece of paper.

• Use markers, colored pencils or crayons.

• The colors you will need are: Red, blue, pink, purple and green.

• You can leave the background white or use a very light color for the background (explained in the resource).

*Note: If you plan to laminate this poster don’t use crayons because often times the heat from the laminator will melt the wax from the crayons and ruin the poster.

*****2 Poster Options*****

Poster #1: The first version of the poster has the color key in black and white with instructions and notes printed at the top telling the students exactly what they need to do on their page (see preview for examples). You will need to print the page in black and white for this option. There are complete instructions in the resource for you.

Poster #2: The second version of this poster has the color key actually in full color. If you have the ability to print in color please use this poster. It will be easier for students to know exactly how their piece should be colored. It's also really helpful for younger children who might not yet be able to read and will save you from having to run around the room reading the different instructions to the kids (see preview for examples).

This poster is part of my very popular Famous Faces® series which includes:
