Who could forget the sultry sounds of Eddie Floyd and Percy Sledge? Tracy Larkin visits the artists who transformed music and placed southern soul on the map.

        Zora Neale Hurston [ Alabama native]
        Wednesday, April 09, 2008 at 8:00PM on APT
        Writer, cultural anthropologist, chronicler of folk roots and ethnic traditions, daughter of former slaves, Hurston was one of the most celebrated - and most controversial - figures of the Harlem Renaissance, the creatively expansive era in the 1920s when the Negro was in vogue. She attained unique success in all areas, but her words and her conclusions were often mired in contention - and she died a pauper's death in total obscurity.

        **Charles J. Shields signs Mockingbird [bio of Harper Lee] and his new book I Am Scout
        Milestone Books, Vestavia Hills , April 23, 4-6pm
         Former teacher, journalist and reporter, Charles J. Shields is author
        of the New York Times best seller, Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee
        and his latest book I Am Scout.  In the young adult adaptation of his
        acclaimed biography of the unconventional Harper Lee, Shield captures
        his elusive subject and her lifelong friend, Truman Capote.  Older
        readers can go directly to the adult book to find out more, but this
        highly readable offering is well suited to younger readers.

        segregation campaign begins.  Before it is over, more than

        2,000 demonstrators, including King, will be arrested. The

        Birmingham Manifesto, issued by Fred Shuttlesworth of the

        Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights the morning of

        the campaign, summarizes the frustration and hopes of the

        protesters: "The patience of an oppressed people cannot

        endure forever.... This is Birmingham 's moment of truth in

        which every citizen can play his part in her larger destiny."
