Little Rock, Arkansas played an important role in the Civil Rights movement that helped set the stage for a major national movement. The Department of Arkansas Heritage along with several other organizations and institutions funded a grant to create the Arkansas Civil Rights History Mobile App. Using the App Builder Platform, the Department of Arkansas Heritage was able to create a comprehensive tour of more than 30 locations, all available in English and Spanish.
This narrative tour guide will takes you through numerous sites in Little Rock that have played significant roles in the city’s civil rights history, covering both the more familiar and the less well-known people, places and events. Multimedia and links to further resources will help you to delve even deeper into this history throughout and after your journey. This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
