This course offers a brief history of the fraternal order known as the Mosaic Templars. It was founded by John Bush and Chester Keats in the late 1800s to create an opportunity for African Americans to have a proper burial with dignity and a tombstone. In 1937, the Mosaic Templars came to an end due to The Great Depression. Still, their history lives on through people like Jajuan Johnson and the museum which was constructed in Little Rock in the original building used by the Templars. Many believe that the Templars were the forefathers to the Civil Rights Movement and definitely feel they share an important part in both African American and Arkansas History.
