The state of Arkansas has found a new way to honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In observance of Black History Month, the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission proudly announces Arkansas’ first commemorative license plate dedicated to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The commemorative license plate will be available at local revenue offices throughout the state of Arkansas.

“I am pleased to announce that Arkansas is one of five states in the nation that now offers a license plate commemorating the legacy of Dr. King. We did the footwork and gathered interest and support from motorists across the state and now “the dream” is a reality for Arkansans who want to show their support of Dr. King by way of owning a license plate. The introduction of the King Commemorative license plate shows the depth of support that Arkansans have for Dr. King’s vision of equality, nonviolence and acceptance,” says DuShun Scarbrough, Executive Director of the Arkansas Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission.

“Dr. King’s vision was universal and we want to make sure that all Arkansans have an opportunity to own and share the legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. year round.”
