African Americans have been involved in every session of the Arkansas Legislature since the beginning of the state.

A University of Arkansas Fayetteville doctoral candidate spoke Tuesday on some of the challenges they faced. 

The lecture “Spokesmen for Their Race:  African-American Political Involvement in Arkansas, 1868 to 1893” was presented by Rodney Harris at Black River Technical College in Pocahontas. 

Harris discussed how African Americans were involved in Arkansas politics  despite the challenges of slavery.
