Making Alabama: A Traveling Bicentennial Exhibit

Monday, April 23, 2018

We all belong to a larger-than-life story, over two hundred years in the making. As Alabamians, our story is being crafted by the moments that both define and refine who we are. A tightly woven tapestry of trials, triumphs and transformations, this vibrant tale celebrates our commonalities and honors our individualities. It is an epic adventure, twisting its way through the peaks and valleys of the past and taking hopeful turns for the future. Its plot is steeped in little-known secrets and monumental events forever carved in history. Its setting spans every county in the state and features a full and fascinating cast of local, unsung heroes and world-famous champions of change. Welcome to the unprecedented, unabridged and often unexpected story of Making Alabama. A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit. Making Alabama is presented by Alabama Humanities Foundation in partnership with Alabama Department of Archives and History and the Alabama Bicentennial Commission.
