CAC) has remained dedicated to preserving and promoting the culture and arts of the eco- nomically challenged Black Belt region In cooperation with the organization's contin- uing commitment to preserv- ing and imparting Alabama Black Belt's rich history and diverse cultural heritage, BBTCAC will offer three events scheduled for November 3, 2014. Scholar Dr. Wayne Flynt and Compos- er-singer Kate Campbell will engage participants in narra- tive and song about the histo- ry, culture, and mores of the South. Their presentations will demonstrate how people and place are interconnected through history, culture, poli- tics, and traditions. Dr. Flynt is recognized as Alabama's pre-eminent histo- ry professor and the "con- science of Alabama." He has participated in public pro- gramming throughout the state and the world. Campbell, a former student of Flynt's, has shared the stage with him on numerous occasions as they discuss the connections of his- tory, literature, and music and the ways that they all inform each other. A program will be held for area high school students in grades 9-12 from 10 - llam at Wilcox Academy. Flynt and Campbell will offer students a collaborative exchange of sto- ries'and songs. Flynt will nar- rate with stories and readings from the literary works of noted southern authors. Campbell's musical lyrics accomplish storytelling in a more poetic form of literature, explaining how the history and her personal experience merge to inform the composi- tion of the song. Dr. Flynt's book, KEEP- ING THE FAITH: ORDI- NARY PEOPLE, EXTRAOR- DINARY LIVES, will be the feature of afternoon events. A Book Signing will be held at BBTCAC from 12:00-1:30 pro. Flynt's book is a historical memoir that chronicles his life's work and efforts in rais- ing the social awareness and conscience of the Alabama public, covering his childhood through his career as an emi- nent history professor at Auburn University. BBTCAC's book club, Black Belt Reads will join Flynt for an afternoon book club meet- ing. The final presentation will be a program given by Flynt and Campbell in the Black Belt Art House at 209 Claiborne Street in Camden from 6:00 - 7:30 pro. This pro- gram will focus on the inter- relations of Alabama history and the songs of Kate Campbell. Dr. Flynt will explain the historical and political backgrounds, and Campbell will sing the songs that grew out of those histori- cal, political, or cultural events. These events will be offered at No Charge to the public thanks to generous grant fund- ing from the Alabama Humanities Foundation. Additional program support will be provided by the Black Belt Treasures Cultural Arts Center Guild, Black Belt Community Foundation, Community Foundation of South Alabama, and the Daniel Foundation of Alabama For more informa- tion, or to RSVP, please email or call (334) 682-9878. 14 X 4O SAME Qaa D' Barns at Lower Prices:!
