Hear Tales of Triumph, Tragedy Tuesday

Hear Tales of Triumph, Tragedy Tuesday

Catch the next Tales From the South (Dinner & Show) at the Argenta Branch library, Tues., Oct. 7, 6-8 p.m., featuring Dr. Daniel Black.

Originally from rural Arkansas, Dr. Black is professor of African American Studies at Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College. His newest release, The Coming, is a first-hand account of the trauma and triumph of Africans on a slave ship in the 16th century. Early reviewers are deeming this work “brilliant”, “poetic”, “a literary homage to the lives of those Africans tossed into the sea.” It will be released in the next several months. Dr. Black is currently in the final stages of a brand new novel titled Listen to the Lambs. This work explores the lives and agency of homeless people who find each other on the street and create heaven out of nothing.

11-year-old captures essence of Arkansas through photos


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV)- Every day we pass hundreds, if not thousands of people. We see their faces, we see their clothes, but we don't always see beneath their image to their essence.

One young Arkansas girl is trying to change that, one picture at a time.

11-year-old Katie Chandler began the Facebook page Humans of Arkansas in July as a way to tell the hundreds of stories we don't see every day.

"Some people reject us and some people are glad to do it," Chandler said smiling.

"Essentially what's she's trying to do is to capture the essence of Arkansas through photographs, and anecdotes, and quotes," added Katie's mother Amanda Chandler.

Even though she's from the tiny town of Newhope, Katie has traveled all over Arkansas, cementing moments in time in Hot Springs, Little Rock and Fayetteville, introducing new characters, triumphs, and tribulations with each snap shot.

Saline County receives Civil War Historical Marker

Saline County receives Civil War Historical Marker

SALINE COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – Community leaders and history buffs came out Sunday as the county unveiled their official 150th anniversary marker from the war-between-the-states.

The Saline County Civil War Sesequicententennial Historical Marker depicts a famous artifact--the county's seal--which was lost for 133 years. Each county gets a marker through the Department of Arkansas Heritage.

"That seal was in use from when the county started around 1836 until it disappeared, so it was on records of all kinds," explained Jim Harris, Saline County Circuit Clerk. "The very earliest settlers had their land stamped with it."

The old seal was found in 1996 and is now displayed in the county clerk's office.
