African-American populations and communities have been a vital and significant part of the Ozarks since early settlement of many of the towns--often impacting their social, cultural, economical and historical development. This diversity and ethnicity within communities result in a rich fabric of shared cultures that contribute to a community's vibrancy and quality of life.
