The history of our area is steeped in rich African American heritage. So many of our esteemed leaders have left an indelible impact not only on our city, county, and region, but across the globe. From the stinging yoke of slavery to the liberation and empowerment of the Reconstruction Era; from decades of disenfranchisement to the passage of the Voting Rights Act; from oppressive Jim Crowe laws to a proliferation of African American elected officials; our history is black history. We invite you to explore a small slice of Selma and Dallas County’s African American Heritage by visiting these 10 sites:
BIRMINGHAM – The Selma and Dallas County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Information Executive Director, Sheryl Smedley, spent a portion of Friday attending The Partnership’s Annual Meeting in support of three local finalists for statewide business awards. The Partnership, a collaboration between the Business Council of Alabama and the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama, presents awards each year for “Alabama Small Business of the Year” and “Emerging Small Business of the Year.”
Every year the Bridge Crossing Jubilee, Inc., hosts the commemoration of this historic event and the struggle for the right to vote, by gathering at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in a festival of music, art and historical remembrance. Events include a parade, a Miss Jubilee Pageant, a mock trial, and a commemorative march to the bridge. Every five years, celebrants continue all the way to Montgomery.
