Superhero Day - Clara Luper

Today we’re grabbing our capes and masks to save the day! Everyone could use a superhero and today that’s going to be us. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Clara Luper. Her hometown was Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Luper is a history teacher by trade, but spent much of her life making history fighting for equal rights for all. She organized the first publicized sit-in in the nation. Luper also helped desegregate Oklahoma City Public Schools and led the Freedom March in Tulsa. Luper dedicated her life to improving life for those around her and is an awesome role model! You can learn more by reading Clara Luper’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
