The 1920s was a time of significant growth and development in the capital city, but also a time of racial segregation. At the end of this booming period of development Little Rock constructed two schools, one white and one African-American, that were unrivaled in their beauty and grandeur. Join local architect and AIA Fellow, Kwendeche, and Main Street Arkansas Exterior Design Consultant and Architectural Historian, Mason Toms, as they discuss the architecture and history of two of Little Rock’s most significant school buildings.
Coordinated by the University of Central Arkansas College of Fine Arts and Communication, this lecture is just one of a series of events occurring from September 4th through 30th commemorating the 90th Anniversary of Little Rock’s Central High School and the 60th Anniversary of the Desegregation Crisis.
Sponsors of this lecture include the Architecture + Design Network (ADN), the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the Central Arkansas Section of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Curtis Stout Audio Visual, and Hearne Fine Art.
