Do to pressure by the National Council on southern states Arkansas Governor implemented the Colored Auxiliary County Council. The National Council believed that rallying the support of the black population was “of vital importance” to the “Federal authorities.”   The first meeting was held in Little Rock at the capital on August 10, 1918, fifteen months after the State Council was formed and after nine months of pressure from the National Council. Invited to this meeting were black educators, pastors, and other leaders of the community. These documents show the creation of the Auxiliary Council and the individuals involved.
