Great African Americans 2 Knowledge Cards
Changemakers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the African Americans featured here have quietly righted imbalances of power and fiercely dismantled institutional barriers to racial equity. Do you know who they are?
With a quick fact on the front and a short biography on the back, each card in this deck will test your knowledge of America’s story. Rosa Parks made headlines and the history books, but do you know the fifteen-year-old girl who galvanized the movement? Educators, civil rights leaders, artists, writers, politicians, scientists, and so much more, these women and men have fought, in the words of President Barack Obama, “to make real the promise of America.”With portraits on one side and profiles on the other, these 48 fact-filled Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards. 3.25" x 4"
