Honoring Our Past

Arkansas Civil Rights Heritage Trail

The Arkansas Civil Rights Heritage Trail was created by the Anderson Institute on Race and Ethnicity to acknowledge the sacrifices and achievements made by those who fought for racial and ethnic justice in Arkansas.

Since the trail’s inception in 2011, East-Harding Construction has partnered with the university to install each year’s markers along the trail.

The Trail begins on the sidewalk outside the Old State House at 300 West Markham Street.  Eventually, the Trail will extend down West Markham Street and President Clinton Boulevard to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum.

In 2016, the Trail won a Diamond Award from the Arkansas Historical Association “for honoring and increasing public awareness of the freedom struggle in Arkansas.”

Last year, the Arkansas Civil Rights Heritage Trail was named a part of the U.S. Civil Rights Trail.
