Who Am I? (Display)



An interactive display for Black History Month, Who Am I? shares historically important facts about 17 black Americans. It invites users to read the information and guess to whom the facts are referring, then lift the cover page/fact sheet to reveal the image of the person, along with date of birth and, when applicable, date of death.

  • Fact sheet: Key matching people to their biographical facts, used as a point of reference for the person creating the display
  • Biographical facts: Print one per page
  • Answers and images: Print one per page

How to assemble

  1. Using the fact sheet as your guide, match the corresponding biographical facts and images together. (For example, match "I was a civil rights lawyer who won 29 of the 30 cases I presented before the U.S. Supreme Court, and I went on to become the first African-American U.S. Supreme Court Justice," to the Thurgood Marshall image page.)
  2. Fasten each pair of quotes and photo pages to your display. (Note: I would recommend first stapling the upper-left and -right corners of both sheets to the board, then stapling just the bottom corners of the bottom sheet to the board.)
  3. Affix the โ€œLift Hereโ€ tabs, found on page 17 of the biographical facts document, to the lower-right corner of the quote sheets. (Note: This is optional. I did this by cutting out each "Lift Here" icon and securing it to the top sheets with a little scotch tape. I found that the tape provided an easy way to lift the top sheet.)
  4. The "Who Am I" title page can be found on page 16 of the quotes document.
