BPL Again Featured on C-SPAN

For the third time in 2013, the Birmingham Public Library is featured on C-SPAN. The most recent program, which began airing this week, is titled In Birmingham They Love the Gov’nor: George Wallace, Birmingham and Beyond. The program was held in the Richard Arrington Auditorium of the downtown library on September 9, 2013. The panelists, Dr. Dan T. Carter of the University of South Carolina, Dr. Glenn T. Eskew of Georgia State University, and Dr. Angela K. Lewis of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, discussed George Wallace’s role in Birmingham’s civil rights struggle and Wallace’s continuing influence on American politics and race relations today.

Generous financial support for this program was provided by the Rita C. Kimerling Family Fund.

The program can be viewed on the C-SPAN website at http://c-spanvideo.org/program/Segrega.
