An exhibit opening at the Central Arkansas Library System is offering a window into how a school with only black students operated for decades in the Arkansas Delta.

The display on the former Brinkley Academy opens Monday and runs through June 29.

The school was formed in 1893 by a consortium of Missionary Baptist congregations. Brinkley Academy was one of three boarding schools for black students in the area.

The exhibit is being organized by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, though the presentation was produced by the Arkansas secretary of state's office and Park Central Little Rock.

The display will be on view at the main library in downtown Little Rock.
