A new mobile app providing users with a tour of Little Rock’s civil rights history is launching Monday. The city of Little Rock partnered with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Institute on Race and Ethnicity to develop the app. It features information on 35 stops with stories of people and places important to Arkansas’s civil rights history. 

KUAR’s Chris Hickey spoke with Dr. John Kirk, historian and institute director, who helped lead the development of the app. 

You can download the app from the iTunes store here and from the Google Play store here.
