      Listings since July 2002 are also at
      http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistnews0.htm

      as well as in the archives of alabamahistory at Yahoo:
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/alabamahistory

      Listings prior to that date are in the archives.

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in
      reverse chronological order within each section.

      All links are working at the time I send this email and post them to the
      web page listing. Some of the longer URLs may wrap to the next line; you
      may need to copy and paste in order to get the entire link into your
      browser. If that doesn't work, go to the appropriate listings page
      [start at http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistnews0.htm ]and try from there.
      You can also copy the link and paste it into Word and see if that
      straightens it out so you can copy and paste it into your browser. If
      the story is fairly recent, you can also try Google News at
      http://news.google.com/ ; put some significant words from the article
      title in the search box and see if the article comes up.

      A listing of Alabama history links can be found at
      http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistory.htm

      Please send me information on broken links you find or links I don't
      have listed!

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

      **1895 September 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.
