Join the Delta Cultural Center for this month long celebration of Black History Month featuring weekly performances by S. Juain Young & Artists United of Little Rock,  who will present a magical, exciting and educational journey through history. This production will touch the hearts and minds of all ages through living history re-enactments. Hand clapping, foot-tapping, dancing, singing and oral history will flow and unlock many treasures to the audience about our Arkansas Delta. 

In this production, students and adults alike will be enlightened and educated about life in the Arkansas Delta from the 1800s to the 1970s. This living history re-enactment will focus on agriculture, education, diversity, music and influential people from our past.

On Friday (February 11,18 & 25) and Thursday, February 24 there will be two performances daily for school groups.  These activities will take place at Beth El Heritage Hall, but some may occur at local schools depending on their need.

Arkansas Heritage is committed to the safety of our staff and guests. Due to the rise in COVID numbers, please check our social media pages for the latest on in-person events including postponements, cancellations or adjustments to virtual.
