THE SCHOOL POSTER PROJECT

In February of 2017, we officially launched our school poster project, designed to supply iconic images of Ralph Ellison to Oklahoma City Schools. This design, "American/Oklahoma Legend," courtesy of local artist Tiffani Sanders, is now on display at several schools across the metro area in order to raise students' awareness of Oklahoma's most significant literary contribution to the world.

The images below document the poster's unveiling at John Rex Elementary, Wilson Elementary, and Filmore Elementary. Many thanks to those pictured (left to right): Head of School Joe Pierce, Tiffani Sanders, and REF board member Lisa Foster at John Rex; OKCPS District 4 Board Member Paula Lewis and Library/Media Specialist Tammy Knapp at Wilson Elementary; and OKCPS District 2 board member Gloria Torres, Principal Susan Martin-Rachels, and REF board member Laura Massenat at Fillmore Elementary.

Stay tuned for more developments about this project!
