    Becky Nichols and the team at the Selma and Dallas County Public Library are constantly providing programs and resources that enrich and improve our community! If you haven't stopped by lately, take a moment to do so during National Library Week (April 9-15, 2017). We are especially partial to the library's incredible local archive, but they have something for everyone and every age. Check out our community calendar for events around the library. When you stop by, make sure to ask about the library's upcoming summer programming focused on "Building a Better World," and tell them the Chamber sent you!

  • Black History Month Bucket List

    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:

Road to Freedom Wagon Tour

Road to Freedom Wagon Tour

Saturday, March 4, 2017

10:00 am – 11:00 am

 

Lest we forget: one hundred years BEFORE the 1965 Voting Rights March focused on the Dallas county courthouse in nearby Selma, a brave community of recently emancipated African-Americans gathered around an older courthouse in Cahawba. 

 

These 19th century "foot soldiers" exercised their right to vote and - for a brief time - gained great political power. This wagon tour tells the story of Cahawba's African American majority and traces their path from slavery to freedom with a special emphasis on how they reshaped Cahawba as they pursued their dreams of equality. Call 334-872-8058 for more information or visit www.cahawba.com or www.facebook.com/oldcahawba.
