Dream Land: Little Rock’s West 9th Street” Initiative


AETN produced an Emmy-winning documentary on the rise and fall of Little Rock, Arkansas’s successful yet segregated African-American business district (1940-50’s) using an historic building in the district known as the Dreamland Ballroom as a focal point. By finally telling this emotional story through historians and the Arkansas African Americans who lived it first-hand, AETN has connected with dozens of community partnerships, held educational screenings, panels discussions, workshops and conducted riveting community dialogues on diversity and race relations throughout 2018.
