The Harambee Market (HM) was founded in June 2014 by Melanie Lacy. The idea started as a small monthly gathering in her apartment with her selling her famous Yum Yum Cafe’ soul-food vegan and raw food dishes. Many of her artsy and creative sistah-friends would stop by and purchase a plate (or two), eat, chit-chat, stay awhile, and eventually barter with one another with the unique products they created. Everyone brought something to the gathering. From homemade deodorant (Yes, we have a sistah here who makes vegan-friendly deodorant from scratch!) to natural hair care products. It was when Melanie’s space become a bit cramped for the monthly gathering that it was time to seek out a larger place which would allow her to sell food to more customers along with enough space that her friends could set up tables and test out selling their wares. That new location was Afrodesia Studio of Performing Arts. And the new name for this collective works, the Harambee Market.

With a new space to call home, a total of eight vendors, mostly friends of Melanie’s, came out on what was probably the rainiest day of the year. Shango showed up with booming thunder, lightening and an endless downpour of rain! But vendors still came out and huddled together inside as a family unit. The motto that day was: “Be it rain or shine, we’re gonna shine!”  So that Sunday. June 8, 2014 was the birth of the Harambee Market Little Rock featuring vegan food by Yum Yum Cafe’. The space was perfect. The vendors where in good spirits and despite the wet weather the community came out and supported with their love, warm hugs, well wishes, and of course – their purchases! Since then the Harambee Market Little Rock has grown to incorporate a vendor network that promotes, supports and creates opportunity for small independent business sustainability in the community. Our cooperative economic village has grown with up to 30 plus vendors that come from in and around the city of Little Rock, as well as Pine Bluff, and as far as Memphis, Tn.

At the Harambee Market you will find a unique and exciting venue featuring arts & crafts, African imports, hand-crafted merchandise, and so much more. This is the only one of its kind here in the Natural State with a sincere interest in local economics. The market serves as a place to facilitate business productivity in the spirit of Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics). We ask that you come out, shop and totally immerse yourself in the positive energy and vibe the market creates.

In addition to vendors selling their products we encourage and engage in meaningful socialization among us. We are building a village. We support one another. We are one.

Join the movement! Come shop, support, and bring back what we once had. Come every 3rd Sunday of the month and embrace the spirit of Harambee!

Ase’!

In 1988, Archie and Garbo Hearne combined their passion for African American culture and history with their entrepreneurial spirit to open Pyramid Gallery.  In January 1989, Pyramid Gallery relocated from a 600 square foot storefront to a much larger venue in the Madison Guaranty Bank Building on Little Rock’s Main Street. Over the next eight years, Pyramid Gallery and Books served as a community space: hosting book signings, art exhibitions and demonstrations, and other cultural and community enrichment programs. In 1997, nine years after establishing Pyramid Gallery and Books as the premiere place for art by Americans of African descent in Arkansas, Archie and Garbo had the unique opportunity to design a completely new space within the Museum Center in the River Market District. In 2010, Hearne Family Practice and Hearne Fine Art opened its doors at 1001 Wright Avenue in the historic Dunbar neighborhood.

At Conway Children’s Castle, we are teaching children science, technology, engineering, art and math to make sure that our future generations develop a love for science and technology and can help our community move forward. We serve students 0-4 years old, using the Adventures in Learning curriculum while adding elements of Gifted and Talented to cultivate a love of learning and an excitement for science and technology classes.

History of Mosaic Templars Cultural Center

The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) was founded as the Mosaic Templars of America Center for African American Culture and Business Enterprise under Act 1176 of 2001. MTCC was created as a museum of the Department of Arkansas Heritage and it honors the story of the Mosaic Templars of America and all of Arkansas’s African American history.

The museum is dedicated to telling the story of the African American experience in Arkansas. The Center’s name is taken from the Mosaic Templars of America, a black fraternal organization founded in Little Rock in 1883 whose headquarters sat on the prominent West Ninth and Broadway location. Like many businesses throughout the United States, the Mosaic Templars of America organization was forced out of business during the Great Depression. Originally, the Center planned to restore the 1913 Mosaic Templars of America National Grand Temple, but the original building was destroyed by fire in March 2005. The new 35,000 square feet interior is a state-of-the-art museum complex with exhibits, classroom, staff offices, and an Auditorium that seats 400 people. The façade of the new structure is a facsimile of the 1913 building complete with the Annex building façade, which burned in 1984.

The mission of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center is to preserve, interpret and celebrate African American history and culture in Arkansas. The museum’s exhibits highlight fraternal organizations, African American entrepreneurs as well as integration.

Beyond just exhibits, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center provides lesson plans and outreach programs for students and teachers. These materials, especially the lesson plans, are in great demand by classroom teachers and have closed a gap in the teaching of Arkansas history. All educational materials developed by the Education staff are tied to the Arkansas Department of Education Curriculum Frameworks.

MTCC strives to educate students as well as the general public through a wide range of events and programs that help support its mission as well as expose the community to some of the more prominent topics in African American culture and history.
