      Subject: Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture at Birmingham Public Library

      Begin the Day: The Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture

      Sponsored by the Birmingham Public Library's Department of Archives and
      Manuscripts

      January 19, 2011, Noon
      Birmingham Public Library, Downtown

      "Landscape of Transformations: Architecture and Birmingham, Alabama"
      Dr. Michael Fazio, Mississippi State University

      Reading the landscape and buildings of Birmingham the way other
      historians read a written document, Michael Fazio explores the major
      events of Birmingham's civil rights struggle by looking for meaning in
      the buildings, streets, and landscapes where these events took place. He
      examines the Magic City's industrial development, the rise of suburbs
      and the role of its most important feature, Red Mountain, in both
      helping create and divide the community.

      Copies of Michael Fazio's book 'Landscape of Transformations' will be
      available for purchase.
