Becoming Alabama: Who, What, When, Where, and Why
Please join us January 21-22, 2011 for a public symposium on the past, present, and future of the press in Alabama.
Tony Barnhart, Rick Bragg and Rheta Grimsley Johnson headline a roster of presenters who will consider how the press has recorded, reported and shaped Alabama politics, culture and opinion. Scholars and professionals will explore the role of the press and media from the 1814 massacre at Fort Mims, a galvanizing event in Alabama and U.S. history, all the way through to the Gulf Oil Spill.
The symposium is a Becoming Alabama event. Designed to commemorate major Alabama anniversaries of the Creek War/War of 1812, the Civil War and Emancipation and the Civil Rights era, Becoming Alabama is a statewide initiative begun by the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
