Welcome to NWA Black Heritage, where we are dedicated to preserving, documenting, and promoting the rich heritage and culture of Black communities in Northwest Arkansas. Our mission is to fill the gaps that exist in our documented history while exposing the systemic racism and inequality that continues to plague our society. Change doesn't happen overnight. It requires dedication, hard work, and collaboration. At NWA Black Heritage, we focus on the often overlooked and intentionally suppressed contributions and experiences of Black individuals in Northwest Arkansas.
Our goal is to recover and restore the last remaining historic Black community in Fayetteville and all of Northwest Arkansas.
We strive to engage youth and collaborate with various organizations to preserve and promote Black heritage and culture in NWA.
We partner with organizations to research and document Black heritage, including oral histories, from pre-and post-Civil War NWA.
We believe in correcting the systemic and historical injustices through community development, education, and engagement. Our initiatives empower and celebrate Black heritage to amplify our voices and experiences. We invite you to learn more about our work and join us in this crucial journey towards equity and justice.
