A live music event is planned for this month to celebrate the history of Little Rock’s True Soul Records.

A panel discussion will accompany the performance at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Ron Robinson Theater, 100 River Market Ave. in downtown Little Rock.

Lee Anthony started True Soul Records in Little Rock in 1968, according to a news release about the event, which describes him as a pioneer of Little Rock soul music.

Anthony opened up the first black-owned record store in Arkansas, Soul Brothers, in 1966. The store is said to have anchored Little Rock’s soul and funk scene at the time.
