      Alabama History/Culture in the News: USE THIS ONE & Bonus Material

      NOTE:


      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. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I could not find online versions.

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

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.


      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      **1963 April 3- Led by Martin Luther King, Jr., the Birmingham anti-

                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."
