      Symposium Explores Alabama*s Rich Heritage

      Explore Alabama*s rich cultural and political heritage during the Alabama Studies Symposium a two-day workshop which takes place Friday, July 20 and Saturday, July 21 in the auditoriums of the Alabama State Capitol and Alabama Department of Archives and History. The Symposium will feature presentations and activities including two optional preconference workshops. An interactive Friday afternoon session on music and dance promises a foot-stomping good time. Preregistration (before July 13) is $30 per person; on site registration is $40 per person.

      Keynote speaker, Dr. David Mathews, President, Kettering Foundation, will address the question
      *What Do We Know About the Public That Created Alabama*s Public Schools?*. Concurrent sessions will explore Alabama*s diverse history from early American Indians to the role of the Air National Guard in the Bay of Pigs Invasion to studying Alabama's towns.

      This program is a perfect opportunity for the general public to learn more about Alabama*s rich history and will especially benefit teachers integrating Alabama history into the classroom curriculum. The Symposium is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Alabama Archives, the Alabama Department of Archives and History, the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the Alabama Historical Commission, and the Alabama Humanities Foundation, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

      For more information call (334) 242-4363, ext. 235. For a complete schedule and registration form see http://www.archives.state.al.us/whatsnew/sympos2k1.html.
