Freedom Bus Tour Makes Final Stops

 

 

Join the Freedom Bus tour in celebration of the publication of Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail: An Illustrated Guide to the Cradle of Freedom by Frye Gaillard, with a Foreword by Juan Williams, and published by The University of Alabama Press. Following stops in Montgomery, Selma, and Tuscaloosa, the Freedom Bus Tour will make its final stop at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI). The event is scheduled for February 11 at 5:30 p.m. with a special program featuring Gaillard, foot soldiers from the Civil Rights Movement and special guests.
 
No state has embraced and preserved its civil rights history more than Alabama. Nor is there a place where that history is richer. This first-ever, comprehensive book tells of Alabama’s great civil rights events, as well as its lesser-known moments, in a compact and accessible narrative paired with a guide to Alabama’s preserved civil rights sites and monuments.
 
Frye Gaillard is the author of Race, Rock and Religion: Profiles from a Southern Journalist, The Dream Long Deferred: The Landmark Struggle for Desegregation in Charlotte, North Carolina, Becoming Truly Free: 300 Years of Black History in the Carolinas, and Cradle of Freedom: Alabama and the Movement that Changed America. He is currently writer-in-residence at the University of South Alabama in Mobile.
 
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact The University of Alabama Press at (205) 348-9534. Copies Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail will be available in the BCRI Gift Store, online at www.uapress.ua.edu, or where all good books are sold.
