The Arkansas Civil Rights Heritage Trail was created by the UALR Institute on Race and Ethnicity to acknowledge the sacrifices and achievements made by those who fought for racial and ethnic justice in Arkansas.
The Trail begins on the sidewalk outside the Old State House at 300 West Markham Street. New markers are added in a public ceremony each year.
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 an “exceptional contribution to the study, preservation [and] promotion of Arkansas history.”
