A Page in Black History

Several years ago I made about 14 single sided scrapbook pages, with an unusual black history fact on it. I made the pages 8½ X 11 and slipped them into sheet protectors. During Black History Month we place the pages in the middle of each table in the Library; every few days I move the pages around to different tables (so that the student who sits at the same table every day would get to see different sheets). The pages are bright and colorful, to catch your attention. I have reused them over and over again. Below are some of the people and/or events I used for the scrap booking sheets.

* John Myers-WWII Test Pilot
* Quilts-Secret Slave quilt code
* Marie Laveau-Voodoo Queen
* Henry O. Flipper-
1st Black Graduate of West Point

P.S. If you’re not a scrap booker this could be a project for a history class, a contest for students, or a Volunteer project for someone to do.

P.S.S. This would work for Women's History Month, Native American Heritage Month, etc.
