Product Description
This assignment is perfect for:
Black History Month
Civil Rights Movement
Incorporating African American History anytime of the year
Displaying on the wall in your class or hallway

Students will need access to computers to conduct research to complete this assignment. It is possible that they may find books in the library on some of the people listed.
Students will choose 2 or more people from the list to research and learn more about. I have intentionally left off great African Americans such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks because students seem to learn about them year after year. While they are great Americans who had great achievements, I like for students to learn about lesser known African Americans who also did amazing things. However, you are certainly welcome to add anyone to the list that you’d like for your students to research. After they have conducted their research, they will choose which person they found most interesting and write a reflection on them.


Here is the list of Great African Americans your students will choose from:
Larry Doby
Crispus Attucks
Hattie McDaniel
Patrick Healy
Edith S. Sampson
Percy Lavon Julian
Doris “Dorie” Miller
Vivien Theodore Thomas
Edward Alexander Bouchet
Martha Euphemia Lofton Haynes
Octavia Butler
Benjamin Banneker
Charles L. Reason
Elijah McCoy
Josephine Ruffin
