3 Arkansans are part of African-American oral history archive
The largest African-American archive of oral histories is now located at the Library of Congress. The non-profit group HistoryMakers have been working on collecting thousands of interviews to tell the story of the African-American experience. Three Arkansans are on the list; civil rights lawyer and activist Adjoa Aiyetoro, Presidential diarist Janis Kearney, and banking executive and presidential appointee Bob Nash. KASU's Johnathan Reaves has more in this report.
The public can start viewing the archive this fall. More information can be found here.
