We are People Helping Others Excel by Example
The Uzuri Project ~ A Black History Community Program of Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.
People Helping Others Excel by Example (P.H.O.E.B.E.) began in 1997 as The Uzuri Project, a temporary Black history project about African Americans in the Hot Springs community. Founded with five Hot Springs citizens, they began to accumulate the photographs and oral history of the African American living in Hot Sptrings. It was evident that the records had to go on permanent display. Now The Uzuri Project is a continuing endeavor within P.H.O.E.B.E. including over 1,500 donated photographs, artifacts and documents.
