Additional Event Details

Preserve Arkansas, the Black History Commission and Historic Arkansas Museum invite you to Behind the Big House, a program made possible in part by the Arkansas Humanities Council, the National Endowment for Humanities and the Historic Arkansas Museum Foundation.
The Behind the Big House program moves beyond the “Big Houses,” or stately historic homes, to explore extant slave dwellings and interpret the experiences of the enslaved people who inhabited them. This workshop will include live historical interpretations and lectures to highlight the important contributions African Americans made to Arkansas’s history and provide a broad understanding of the importance of slave dwellings and their role in heritage tourism. This year’s program will focus on the differences between slavery in rural and urban areas, foodways, and objects made by enslaved Arkansans.
