      Vulcan Park and Museum to Reveal Stories

      There's something about the word revealing that's just...well...enticing.  And that well describes the schedule for Vulcan Park and Museum's "Birmingham Revealed!  2011 Winter Series."  This series of programs offers revealing insight into the people, places and events that helped shape Birmingham.  Here's what's coming up:


      ·         February 3 - Too Many Questions: An Evening with Virginia Durr - Starring Ginny Loggins, this compelling script is based on the life and times of Birmingham native Virginia Durr.  Born in 1903, Durr's childhood was immersed in the conventions of the segregated South.  She broke with accepted tradition and went on to become one of the country's most passionate voices for civil rights.  Sure to be a great performance....


      ·         March 3 - The Golden Age of Birmingham Broadcasting - Radio and TV programming in Birmingham in the 1960s and '70s abounded with homegrown talent for local tastes.  Sgt. Jack and Cousin Cliff delighted audiences of children, while adults enjoyed the on-air antics of Fannie Flagg and Country Boy Eddie.  This'll be fun....


      ·         April 7 - Bobby Horton: The Stories of Alabama Folk Art -  Among his many other accomplishments, historian, composer and multi-instrumentalist Bobby Horton provided music for Ken Burns' acclaimed PBS documentaries on the Civil War.  In this session, Horton will explore connections between the region's music and its visual art.  A treat for locals and visitors alike....  www.visitvulcan.com
