Biographical/Historical Note

Little River County Training School in Ashdown, Little River County, Arkansas graduated its first class in 1932 and remained open until 1970. The school's history is rooted in eighteen rural communities that slowly closed their school doors as transportation improved and people moved into larger towns. In an effort to preserve the African American history of Little River and other early schools, the Little River County Training School (LRCTS) Alumni Association collected photographs to document their history. The project was made possible with a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and Black History Advisory Committee (now the Black History Commission of Arkansas).
