The Alabama African American History Book

Alabama BicentennialIn 2019, The Alabama Bicentennial African American Heritage Committee published The Future Emerges from the Past: Celebrating 200 Years of Alabama African American History and Culture. This book highlights the people, events, institutions, and movements that contributed to the rich history of the Great State of Alabama, the nation, and world during the state’s first 200 years. The goal was to illuminate how African Americans not only shaped Alabama history but also inspired global movements. This Alabama African American History book is the committees’ gift to our youth and future generations and a reminder that their future emerges from our present.
