Students have probably heard of Martin Luther King, Jr. or Oprah Winfrey. But what about George Washington Carver? Or Sojourner Truth? Kareem Abdul Jabar? Have the students read about famous African Americans and learn about the contributions these people have made to American society. Have students select an African American to feature on a pennant and then create the pennant. Display the pennants around the classroom.
