Black History Month: Winter Olympians

Today marks the start of the 2018 Winter Olympics aka the XXIII Olympic Winter Games! Around the world people will watch their fellow countrymen represent  and do their best in Pyeongchang County, South Korea. And because it’s also Black History Month, I wanted to also celebrate the African-American men and women athletes with this poster I made in Piktochart.  Enjoy:

Happy Black History Month! Here’s an infographic I made detailing some of our people’s achievements. Also if you’re on Duolingo’s Tiny Cards site I created flashcards of Black History Firsts.

 

 

Black History Month Spotlight Infographic: Black Star Wars Characters & Actors

As we continue to celebrate Black History, I wanted to mix my love of Star Wars with my love of blackness. So here’s an infographic that I created using Piktochart that lists the black characters in the Star Wars universe. Granted this might not be a complete list but I did scour high and low to find as many black characters as I could. In addition there’s a bonus section listing black actors who appeared via their voice acting, motion capture, or as a member of the many alien races in the Star Wars universe.  Enjoy:

Black History Month: Black Inventors Infographic

In honor of Black History Month, I created this infographic (using Piktochart) spotlighting 8 black inventors. Obviously there are way more black inventors so head to your local library, or google to learn more. By just creating this infographic, I learned about inventors that I hadn’t heard about before.
