The Arkansas Black History Advisory Committee, created by Act 1233 of 1991, is composed of seven (7) persons appointed by the Governor with the approval of the Senate. Quarterly meetings are held in the conference room of the Arkansas History Commission, One Capitol Mall, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201. The contact person is Dr. John L. Ferguson, State Historian.
The mission of the Arkansas Black History Advisory Committee is to collect black historical materials for the Arkansas History Commission, which is the state archives; to encourage research in Arkansas black history; and to cooperate with the Arkansas Department of Education in the development of African American historical materials for use in public schools.
We are interested in letters, diaries, journals, business records, photographs, church and lodge records, personal memoirs and anything else of a documentary nature that is related to African American history in Arkansas. Please contact us if you have such materials that you are willing to donate or lend for copying. The address is Arkansas History Commission, One Capitol Mall, Little Rock, AR 72201.
