How about combining geometry and black history with a display students create after studying about freedom quilts. There are good ideas at the mathwire site.

We have to decorate our doors this week too. One of the teachers at our school devoted her door to Madam C.J. Walker (inventor of the hair straightener). She had her students color paper plates appropriately (skin color, eyes, etc.), then had 1/2 of her class add "curly" hair (black construction paper wound around fingers/pencil to make it curl) and the other 1/2 of her class had "straight" hair (just plain black construction paper strips). She then posted the "faces" in two columns on her door--before and after. It is so cute!

Check out: The Peace Book, by Todd Parr. My kids have painted really bright pictures like his and written, "Peace is..." That would make an awesome door!!

We are doing a door on Black American cowboys. It is very interesting. They have a black woman that was one of the first black cowboys.
