  • Why Should You Go?
Alabama has much to offer besides great weather, wonderful people, and a very unique culture and history. It has diverse eateries, including some of the best food in America (Birmingham Restaurants). It was founded right after the Civil War, and had numerous fights over the Civil Rights Movement. Many people born and/or raised there still keep true to old traditions and beliefs today, keeping most that are hard to find anywhere else, alive. Birmingham also has a very home-like southern structural environment, based on various ethics and morals, and the people that you meet act as if they’ve known you for years (Official Site).
  • What is Birmingham’s History?
It was discovered right after the American Civil War in 1871 (Official Site). Eventually there were arguments over civil rights between black and white Americans. These broke out into the Civil Rights Movement, which was from 1955 to 1968. This movement was meant to give Black Americans equality throughout America. This movement also tried to abolish racism, but failed (Civil Rights Movement).
