This ongoing projects features the members of the I. M. Terrell High School Alumni Association. This remarkable group of people attended Fort Worth’s historic I. M. Terrell High School during the 1940s through the 1970s. 
The high school closed in 1973, the same year Fort Worth schools were racially integrated
I. M. Terrell was reopened as an elementary school in the 1990s; that iteration of I. M. Terrell closed in 2016. 
In 2018, the high school was remodeled, modernized and opened as the I. M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA
Several portraits in this series were featured in the 2018 I. M. Terrell High School yearbook as a tribute to the alumni association’s legacy and continued support.
A photograph from the portrait set featuring Opal Lee was selected for the TRAHC (Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council) 32nd Annual Juried Exhibition and was on display at the Regional Arts Center in Texarkana, Texas, from August 21 to October 3, 2020.
Thanks to Brenda Watkins (I. M. Terrell High School, Class of ‘64) for being the behind-the-scenes producer on this project.
