The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, in celebration of Black History Month, presents two free events that are open to both students and the community. The following events are brought to you by the UACCM Diversity & Inclusion Committee and in partnership with the Arkansas Arts Council.
Dunbar Traveling Exhibit, on loan from the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, will be on UACCM’s campus February 1 – 12 and is open 10:00 am – 4:00 pm in the Student Union of the Kirk Building. Known as the finest high school for negro boys and girls, Dunbar High School was built in Little Rock in 1929.
