      Brown Bag Lunch Series Lecture

      "From Racist Demagogue to Best Selling New Age Author: The Strange
      Journey of Alabama's Asa Carter"
      Dan T. Carter, University of South Carolina

      September 22nd, Noon
      Birmingham Public Library downtown

      Join us to hear historian Dan Carter discuss the unusual life and career
      of Asa Carter, a flamboyant and violent opponent of the Civil Rights
      Movement. A talented writer, Carter penned one of the most famous
      speeches of the civil rights era, George Wallace's "Segregation now!
      Segregation tomorrow! Segregation forever!" inaugural address. Later in
      life Carter left Alabama, became a novelist and adopted the pseudonym
      Bedford Forrest Carter. He wrote the novel 'Gone to Texas,' which was
      made into the film 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' starring Clint Eastwood, and
      the popular children's book 'The Education of Little Tree.'

      The program is free and open to the public. Bring a lunch and drinks
      will be provided.
