'Bill Clinton is the only white man in the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame. ' - -
Clinton was inducted in 2002 in recognition of having appointed blacks in high government positions at both the state and federal levels, as well as his work post-presidency fighting AIDS in poverty-stricken areas of Africa. Because of his background -- having been raised by a single mother in poor conditions -- he was famously termed "America's first black president" by author Toni Morrison.
