Birmingham Historical Events Initiative

You can’t learn from the past unless you know what happened in the past, and then find the courage to create better tomorrows.


A team of talented professionals from the film, history, and entertainment worlds are identifying people, incidents, and activities from Alabama’s history and telling their stories to a new generation.

We often forget that in our day to day busy world actions and attitudes are often shaped by past events.  By exploring these moments in history, documenting them, and learning from them we are better prepared to avoid making the same mistakes in the future.

A number of projects are on the drawing board, and over the next few months, we will be sharing highlights of these activities and create opportunities for community involvement.

We invite you to follow us on this journey as we bring these many projects to life.
