Description: BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This Cooperative Agreement P17AC01024 (Agreement) is entered into by the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS), and The City of Little Rock (Recipient). Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site in Little Rock, Arkansas, was established in 1998. The high school, its 21-acre campus, the former Magnolia Mobil service station, commemorative garden, NPS visitor center, and the former Ponder’s Drug Store are included within the park boundary. Little Rock Central High School is owned, operated, and maintained by the Little Rock School District (LRSD). The school operates as a four-year public high school under the administration of the Office of the Superintendent, LRSD. Current enrollment is more than 2,500 students. The Magnolia Mobil service station, visitor center, and commemorative garden are owned and managed by the National Park Service. The park’s total size is 27 acres. In addition to establishing the national historic site, the park’s enabling legislation states that the site will “preserve, protect, and interpret for the benefit, education, and inspiration of present and future generations, Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, and its role in the integration of public schools and the development of the Civil Rights movement in the United States.” The legislation also mandates that the site cannot affect the authority of the Little Rock School District to administer Central High School or the authorities of the City of Little Rock in the neighborhood surrounding the school. The national historic site is surrounded by the Central High School Neighborhood Historic District. The objective for this agreement is to plan, promote, and execute the 60th anniversary commemoration of the integration of Central High School, to engage the public in inspiring and educational programs that will promote awareness of the events of 1957, to facilitate discussions of civil rights history, and to recognize the continued efforts of individuals and organizations toward progress in integration over the past sixty years. The project promotes greater public and private participation in historic preservation programs and activities through a reception and film about civil rights, a jazz concert which will include works inspired by the events surrounding Central High School’s integration in 1957, a 3-D video detailing the construction of the historic school building and commemorating the 60th anniversary of desegregation, and a commemoration ceremony to highlight the Little Rock Nine’s first full day at Little Rock Central High School.
