Black Family Expo

Visit the Central Arkansas Library System’s Black History Expo at Pankey Community Center from 11AM to 2PM on Saturday, February 11, 2023, to learn about families with strong ties to Central Arkansas’s Black history, explore the CALS resources available to preserve your own family’s history, and sign up for a library card. Black History Month giveaways will be happening all day, so please stop by and celebrate our community’s Black History with CALS’ outreach team!

To reserve a table to display your family memorabilia, please call community outreach archivist Danielle Afsordeh at 501.320.5726. There will be 10 tables available.

Families may register for a 30-minute time slot during the event to use the CALS Roberts Library’s Mobile Memory Lab. Roberts staff will assist folks digitizing up to five items (family documents, photographs, and slides) at the Mobile Memory Lab station. One flash drive will be provided to each family with the scanned items. We will have 6 slots available. To register for a 30-minute slot, please call community outreach archivist, Danielle Afsordeh at 501.320.5726.
