AR MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. COMMISSION: Black History Month Virtual Programming
February 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission announces a series of ongoing virtual programs to highlight the accomplishments of African Americans in observance of African American history month.
This week, the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission sits down to chat with beloved community mentor and educator, Mother Annie Abrams in her home at 1925 Wolfe Street, which she has transformed into a library to discuss Little Rock history and the rise and fall of historic West Ninth Street. Mother Annie Abrams is a retired teacher and mentor who is well-respected in the community. “She has mentored the Little Rock Nine and several great leaders over the years. She always talks about service and how our service to others is the “rent” we pay here on the earth. “History is a lot closer than we think,” says Scarbrough. “You can find out a lot of history that is not written or recorded by talking to our senior citizens.” This is a way for the Commission to be inclusive and offer cross-generational programming.”
