I. M. Terrell Legacy Portrait Project


I’ve posted a few portraits featuring members the I. M. Terrell High School Alumni Association; they attended Fort Worth’s historic I. M. Terrell High School during the 1940s, ’50s,’60s and ’70s. 

The high school closed in 1973 when the Fort Worth schools were racially integrated. The high school building was reopened as an elementary school in the 1990s; that iteration of I. M. Terrell closed in 2016. In 2018, the high school reopened as the I. M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA

Several portraits in this ongoing series were featured in the 2018 I. M. Terrell High School yearbook as a tribute to the alumni association’s remarkable legacy and continued support.

Thanks to Brenda Watkins (I. M. Terrell High School, Class of ‘64) for being the behind-the-scenes producer on this project. For more, please see the project’s gallery page.
