A Brief History of Clarksville, Arkansas

Clarksville Karen Company Organized in 2018

There are about 600 Karen (pronounced Kah-REN), an ethnic group from Myanmar, living in Clarksville, with most of them employed at local poultry processing plants (Binkley, 2017). In 2012, a group began meeting together with the Clarksville Spanish company. At the end of February 2018, the group was organized as the Clarksville Karen company with over fifty members (Alcorn, 2018).
