Additional Event Details

The HistoryMakers, in partnership with the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, Arkansas Black Hall of Fame and The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will host a reception on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 6 p.m. The reception will salute several Arkansas African American History Makers.

The HistoryMakers, a 501(c)3 national nonprofit organization headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, is dedicated to recording and preserving the personal histories of well-known and unsung African Americans. It is the largest video oral history archive of its kind, and the only massive attempt, since the WPA Slave Narratives of the 1930s, to record the African American experience in the first voice. In 2014, it was announced that the Library of Congress would serve as the permanent repository for The HistoryMakers Collection. To date, the organization has interviewed over 3,000 HistoryMakers, creating a one-of-a-kind digital archive.
