The Hot Spring County Historical Society is trying to identify the man pictured above who was an activist in Arkansas during the fight for civil rights. He was from Malvern and graduated from Wilson. This man appeared on a DVD about the civil rights struggle in Arkansas, but members of the Historical Society haven not been able to find his name in the attributions.

The Historical Society asks anyone who knows who he is to call them at (501) 229-1600.
