In 1999, TRAHC African American Committee (TAAC) was established in Texarkana, Texas.  TAAC's mission is to tell the African American history, culture, and heritage stories through the performing and visual arts.  The guiding principles are freedom, justice, peace, dignity, courage, civil rights, and achievements.
In 2000, TRAHC officers and six board members created the TRAHC African American Outreach Committee (TAAOC).  They were Ruth Ellen Whitt, CEO; Brian Goesl, Community Development Director; Joyce Campbell, Secretary; Nita Fran Hutcheson, Marketing Director; and Dr. George Bohmfalk, Marvin Brewster, Elaine Denmon, Edna Shepherd, and Rita Williams, board members.  Rev. Joyce Campbell was TAAOC's first chairperson.   
 
The TAAOC and TAAC chairpersons are Jo Ann Rice, 2004; Dr. Teretha F. Harper, 2006 - 2013; and Dr. Genia Bullock, 2013 to the present, 
Educate. Entertain. Empower. That is TAAC's tagline.
