I created these Instagram posts with the hashtag #blackhistorymonth featuring 12 old and newer prominent figures including MLK Jr., Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, Malcolm X, Mae Jemison, and Jackie Robinson.
Each post is posted under their own names, with their profile photos being of some importance to the person (i.e. Muhammad Ali's profile picture is of boxing gloves, Rosa Parks' profile picture is of the barbie doll made in honor of herself, Mae Jemison's profile picture is the NASA logo, etc.)
The number of likes on each post are different, too
I plan to use it by titling my bulletin with the same hashtag and a printed instagram app logo.
I am showing my kids a short video bio of each person and asking them to summarize what they learned about the person. I will then choose the best summary and post it under each Instagram post.
