Mosaic Templars Cultural Center  | Same Mission – New Vision

As an anchor to Little Rock’s famed 9th St. Corridor, Mosaic Templars Cultural Center continues its legacy of service with a fully-renovated permanent exhibit that brings visitors into the story of 9th St., Black History and Mosaic Templars of America.

Director Quantia “Key” Fletcher recognizes that with the 140-year legacy of the Mosaic Templars comes a responsibility to celebrate those who share in this mission. This extraordinary class of Trailblazers, a group of outstanding individuals who help preserve and further the African American experience in Arkansas, will be presented at the anniversary luncheon next month.  “Trailblazers are the ones fulfilling the mission of the museum, who are preserving, interpreting and celebrating Arkansas African American history and culture. We want to celebrate, honor and partner with these visionaries.”   

The afternoon will honor City Director Bruce Moore and Darius Nelson posthumously.

TRAILBLAZER Finalists | The top 15 Trailblazers will be announced at the December 1 Luncheon.
