History of Minorities Poster - in your state, region, or locale

In the US, February is Black History Month. One reason for this special designation is that the history books are written by the powerful majority of a society, while the contributions of minority persons are often ignored or downplayed. 

Research and design a poster that describes a person, location, or historical event relating to the contributions or perspectives of a minority group in your state or geographic region. For example, students located in Kansas do African-American History of Kansas.
