Persistence of the Spirit, directed by Ken Hubbell, was an interpretive study of the people and events that contributed to the black experience in Arkansas. Developed in 1986-87 by a team of humanities scholars (including Patricia Washington McGraw, Carl H. Moneyhon, Ruth Polk Patterson, Grif Stockley, Orville W. Taylor, LeRoy T. Williams, and Nudie E. Williams with Tom Baskett Jr. as editor) supported by grants (from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Division of Public Projects and the Arkansas Humanities Council), the project included a permanent exhibit at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, traveling exhibits, booklets, classroom guides, and a 30-minute video documentary.
