Biographical/Historical Note

The Childress School Project compiled a photographic history of Childress High School, Nashville, Howard County, Arkansas, prior to integration in 1968. In an effort to preserve community heritage, the New Addition Community Development Corporation collected photographs related to Childress, the town's first high school for African American students, established in 1922. The project took place during the 1997 Childress School reunion. The Childress School Project was made possible by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the Black History Advisory Committee (now the Black History Commission of Arkansas).
