History of the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama with Randall Williams
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Writer, publisher, and history editor Randall Williams will explore the larger context of the civil rights movement in a discussion that ranges from slavery through Civil War and Reconstruction to the late 19th and early 20th century activism and organizing that resulted in the 1950s and 1960s dismantling of Jim Crow segregation. Alabama and Montgomery were at the center of this movement but were also part of a national political and social strategy that was evolving in the courts, the streets, the media, and government at all levels.  The program will also be recorded and made available on YouTube, Google+ and Museum’s website.

We will hear from AC Director Bob Sain about History Refused to Die and the renovated building the AC makes its home in.  Enjoy lunch at the original Wintzell’s Oyster House and visit the Mobile Museum of Art to hear from their Director, Deborah Velders.  Drinks and light snacks will be provided on the bus, provided by Southern Coaches.
