Join us for an Arkansas Black Hall of Fame celebration like none before!

On October 28, 2017, the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame celebrates its silver anniversary—25 years of recognizing some of our country’s greatest CEOs, literary achievers, cultural influencers, scientists, and musical composers and artists. You’re invited to walk down memory lane and enjoy a quarter century of black excellence! Past inductees will grace the Robinson Center stage in a variety show featuring music, poetry, dance and comedic performances. Join us as we bring the style of the Kennedy Center Honors to you!

Luenell—a 2015 inductee, stand-up comedian and actor—will emcee this black-tie event. As always, proceeds benefit the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation, which since 2004 has awarded more than $570,000 in grants to organizations serving African-American and underserved communities around Arkansas.
