Situated in the northwest corner of the state of Louisiana, Shreveport is a sort of hub city for the region, aptly called the ArkLaTex. It is so named because it is the largest city situated to draw commerce and visitors from several towns and communities in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas.
Shreveport has grown steadily for the past 50 years. Its cultural diversity has increased since the 1980s and in the 2000s, the city has transformed from a predominant Caucasian to African-American population.
In 2004-2005, Shreveport elected its first ever African-American as mayor.
