LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "This place here is full of history," Emmett White explained as he looked around.
It is Little Rock's Ninth Street, also known as "The End of the Line" and "Little Rock's Harlem." "It's just, wow," White continues. Through the eyes of someone who lived, ate, walked, and breathed here, White remembers it all. He recalled, "Black tailors, you know everybody down here was a black business."
Tameka Lee explained, "The early 1900s probably to about the 1960s, 70s I guess you would say were the peak times." Tameka Lee and Chris Hancock work at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, one of the last two book ends of the historic street remaining.
Hancock described, "People of all races, creeds, religious backgrounds flock to this area because the restaurants were great, the clubs were great. It was a cultural center for really the entire city."
