Uncovering the Rich History of Homes in Historically African American Neighborhoods

Property research can be difficult even when a wealth of information is available. The lack of historical records related to the African American experience in Arkansas can make the task of conducting this research for homes in historically African American neighborhoods even more daunting. Join us at the CALS Williams Library in the Dunbar Historic District to learn some tips and tricks for researching the history of homes and their inhabitants in historically African American communities using resources available through the Central Arkansas Library System and the archival collections at the CALS Roberts Library.

Danielle Afsordeh, Community Outreach Archivist at the CALS Roberts Library/Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, presents this program in coordination with the Quapaw Quarter Association and the Dunbar Historic Neighborhood Association.
