2. Activity Worksheets for each of the 18 individual historical figures and/or celebrities (Tuskegee Airmen not included) that will engage your students in thinking more deeply about each of these great men and women and the sacrifices they made. I’ve included quotations on each of the worksheets. Students will choose one of the quotations and reflect on how those “Words to Live By” affect them personally.

3. Slide Images for Bulletin Board Display!A buyer made a great suggestion to include images that could be displayed on a bulletin board. This was such a great idea so I have now included screenshots of each of the completed "Who Am I?" slides for your convenience!

4. Google Slides Presentation!
Enjoy the same great information and interactivity with these Google Slides. A must for those Chromebook users! I've included a new "Teacher's Notes" page with information about the activity AND a link to the Google Slides Presentation. Click on the link to access the “Who Am I? Black History” Slides Presentation, then click on the blue “Make a Copy” button to have the Google Slides open and be directly saved to your Google Drive.
