**THIS SET IS GEARED TO MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL WITH SLIGHTLY LONGER SENTENCES AND REAL IMAGES OF THE FIGURES.**
This is a set of 12 cards (24 if printed one-sided, though they are designed to be printed two-sided) featuring 12 different African American historical figures. There is a one sentence description for each of the 12 figures and an image with the person's name. I kept the text in the present tense, and an extension activity could include rewriting the sentences in the past tense. I have included a list of ideas for how to use these cards as well as a key so you know which description goes to which person, in case you choose to print them one-sided!
