      **Author Harper Lee greeted fans and posed for
      photos during a rare public appearance. But the author of "To Kill
      a Mockingbird" was brief in accepting the 2002 Alabama Humanities
      Award. Lee's 1960 novel tells the fictional story of a black man
      falsely accused of raping a white woman in an Alabama town in the
      1930s. Since then, Lee has avoided the public eye. Yesterday was no
      exception. When introduced by friend and author Wayne Greenhaw, Lee
      said --quote--"Mister Greenhaw has robbed me of words, so I'll say
      thank you from the bottom of my heart."

      **1895 Sept 18- Booker T. Washington makes a speech at the Cotton States and
              International Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia.  Known as the
              "Atlanta Compromise" speech, Washington advocates acceptance
              of a subordinate role for African Americans, espouses peaceful
              coexistence with white Southerners, and calls agitation over
              the question of social equality "the extremist folly."  The
              speech, which reportedly leaves some African American listeners
              in tears and will incur the wrath of W.E.B. Du Bois and others,
              secures Washington's reputation among whites as a successor
              to Frederick Douglass.

      1963 Sept 15- Four African American schoolgirls - Addie Collins, Denise McNair,
              Carol Robertson and Cynthia Wesley - are killed in a bombing at
              the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.  It
              is an act of violence that galvanizes the civil rights movement.

      1964 Sept 15- Rev. K.L. Buford and Dr. Stanley Smith are elected to the Tuskegee
              City Council and become the first African American elected
              officials in Alabama in the twentieth century.

      1965 Sept 13- Willie Mays hits his 500th career home run.

      1948 Sept 13- Nell Carter is born in Birmingham, Alabama.  She will become a
              Broadway sensation as a singer and actress in Broadway's "Bubbling
              Brown Sugar", "Ain't Misbehavin' "(for which she will win a
              Tony), and for five seasons in television's "Gimme a Break".
