In the 1890's, an African American family of Edmond Robinson settled in Tucson, Arizona, but the actual migration of African Americans started years earlier. This migration was from the freed African Americans that were in servitude by the slavers of the deep south. After the New Mexico territory was split in half; on February 14, 1912 Arizona became the 48th state in the Union. According to historical records, many native American people, and African Americans settled in the new state of Arizona. On March 18, 1986, Martin Luther King Jr. Day became a holiday in Arizona. The World Population Review data research revealed that the population of African Americans in Arizona is at 4.50%. In the year of 1926 Carter G. Woodson implemented a week in the month of February for Negroes' history. But after 50 years, this celebration became a month-long event. As of 2022, the bill House Bill 2112 in Arizona was passed prohibiting instruction in controversial topics in educational institutions. Will African Americans' history in the state of Arizona be forgotten?

"In all my life, I have never been free. I have never been able to do anything with freedom, except in the field of my writing." - Denzel Washington
