Race, Rage, and Resistance
As part of the library’s observance of Black History Month 2021, CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas is hosting a series of discussions of African American history, particularly in the American south. Topics will include the history of lynching, African American farmers, and the effects of Reconstruction.
The CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas is a free, authoritative source of information about the rich history, geography, and culture of Arkansas. It is updated regularly to ensure the people of Arkansas have an accurate and accessible resource to explore our heritage. It will also benefit people outside the state who are seeking information about Arkansas. We invite you to browse our text entries and media galleries to learn more about the people, places, events, legends, and lore of the 25th state. The CALS Encyclopedia of Arkansas is a work in progress. We are continually adding new entries, photographs, maps, videos, and audio files, so check back frequently to see what’s new.
