This black-tie-gala is an evening of accolades and entertainment which honors men and women with Arkansas roots who have distinguished themselves and gained national and/or international acclaim in their chosen fields of endeavor.
The Arkansas Black Hall of Fame has become a highly respected Arkansas institution. The Governor, U.S. Senators and Congressional Representatives, State Constitutional Officers, business, civic and community leaders are among the more than 1,100 people from across the state and nation coming together to honor these outstanding sons and daughters of Arkansas. The annual induction ceremony has been positioned as one of the most relevant social events occurring in our state each year.
The funds raised through the Hall of Fame induction ceremony go to fund the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation.
