Celebrate Music with these Great Americans! Bulletin Board


Black History Month: Celebrate music with these great Americans! bulletin board



With February being Black History Month, I wanted to create a bulletin board highlighting musicians and came up with the title "Celebrate music with these great Americans!"  It was hard to narrow the selection of who to include, so I think I will switch out some names halfway through the month (they won't all fit on my bulletin board at one time...).

I printed out the "condensed" file, trimmed and laminated each half sheet, and then attached them to a folded piece of colored paper.  If you'd rather save some steps, just print out the "double sided" file, fold each page in half, and you're ready to staple them to the bulletin board!

For each musician, I included their name and picture on the front and then their name/nickname, dates, instrument, profession, genre, and one famous title when you lift up the flap.

Here are the 24 musicians included (feel free to add your own):
  • Louis Armstrong
  • Chuck Berry
  • James Brown 
  • Regina Carter
  • Nat King Cole
  • John Coltrane
  • Duke Ellington
  • Ella Fitzgerald
  • Aretha Franklin
  • Dizzy Gillespie
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Billie Holiday
  • Scott Joplin
  • B.B. King
  • Wynton Marsalis
  • Bobby McFerrin
  • Jelly Roll Morton
  • Thelonious Monk
  • Charlie Parker
  • Florence Beatrice Price
  • Bessie Smith
  • William Grant Still 
  • Sarah Vaughan
  • Fats Waller
