      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably 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 either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

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

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites and blogs are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in or sometimes unrelated to 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:

      http://news.yahoo.com/

      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.

      **Justice Without Violence
      Sunday, February 14, 2010 at 8:30PM on Alabama Public Television
      The story of the now legendary Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-1956. Locally engineered by the African American community, this nonviolent protest to end bus segregation inspired a new era in freedom and human rights struggles around the globe. Never has a movement so successfully united a group of people across class, gender and age.

      **Mountain Stage
      John Hammond, Odetta and Jorma Kaukonen
      Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 10:00PM on Alabama Public Television IQ
      John Hammond championed traditional delta blues when others ignored it. Odetta's influence on American music is hard to overstate - Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan are just two of many who credit her as a major influence. An original member of The Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Jorma is a student of traditional American music. [The late singer Odetta was a Birmingham native; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odetta ]
