No state has embraced and preserved its civil rights history more than Alabama. Nor is there a place where that history is richer. ""Alabama's Civil Rights Trail"" 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. In his history of Alabama's civil rights movement, ""Cradle of Freedom"", Frye Gaillard contends that Alabama played the lead role in a historic movement that made all citizens of the nation, black and white, more free. This book, geared toward the casual traveler and the serious student alike, showcases in a vividly illustrated and compelling manner valuable and rich details. It provides a user-friendly, graphic tool for the growing number of travelers, students, and civil rights pilgrims who visit the state annually. The story of the civil rights movement in Alabama is told city by city, region by region, and town by town, with entries on Montgomery, Birmingham, Selma, Tuscaloosa, Tuskegee, and Mobile, as well as chapters on the Black Belt and the Alabama hill country. Smaller but important locales such as Greensboro, Monroeville, and Scottsboro are included, as are more obscure sites like Hale County's Safe House Black History Museum and the birthplace of the Black Panther Party in Lowndes County. The University of Alabama Press wishes to gratefully acknowledge Ed Rogers and the Office of the Provost of The University of Alabama for their generous support of this publication.
