"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.
