Famous people from Arkansas

Bill Clinton, born in Hope, Arkansas, served nearly twelve years as the 40th and 42nd Arkansas governor before being elected 42nd president in the 1992 election.  He was one of the best Presidents in history because he was a Democrat in a Republican state.  He proved Arkansas had options besides the misery that the Republicans caused for years in the state.

Changing racial attitudes and growth in jobs have created a New Great Migration of African Americans back to metropolitan areas in the developing South, especially to such states as Georgia, North Carolina and Texas. These have developed many knowledge industry jobs.
