African Americans of Northeast Arkansas Exhibit
We have a wonderful photo exhibit of prior citizens of Lawrence, Randolph and Craighead Counties. The exhibit opened June
2009 at the Eddie Mae Herron Memorial Center in Pocahontas, AR.
Our research is continueos and the exhibit has been updated with photos and histories of prior citizens who lived in Hoxie,
Walnut Ridge, and Randolph County.
The exhibit, housed at the History Commission in Little Rock and reflects the pride of the family church life, social life and school for African Americans during the 40s, 50s, and 60s.
Make sure your family is presented in this historical exhibit. You can also purchase a copy for $25.
The book contains over 100 photos.
We encourage your participation. Please send your photos and emails to us.

Scott Cemetery Updates
There are graves in the cemetery with missing names and locations. We have some headstones obtained through a grant that allowed
us to purchase headstones. Many were made from oral interviews with people who remembered friends and or family members buried in
Scott. If you know of someone who is buried in Scott Cemetery, please send us names and to your best memory and locations.
Any additional information would be helpful, like date of birth, death date, siblings, spouses, relations, and contact information of
