For 20 years, LEGACY Enterprises has been creating multi-cultural posters and book-markers for schools and institutions. In 1994, Small thought of creating a poster that would feature his art in celebration of Black History Month. Small thought of various names such as "The Black Poster", "The Black History Poster" and decided upon the name, "The Official Black History Month Poster". This decision was the right on as it launched Small from an unknown artist to the most well known Canadian artist over the past two decades.
In 2007, Small changed the name of the poster series to "LEGACY" and elevated the poster's reach and visibility. In that same year, the poster reached new heights by being posted in every branch of the BMO becoming the first true national campaign celebrating the achievements of African-Canadians.
