Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones

A Bicentennial Event

Alabama Story is a two-act play based on actual events about a librarian who takes on segregationist state senators in the Jim Crow South when they try to ban a children’s book from Alabama public libraries. This story is woven together through the recollection and experiences of two childhood friends, one black and one white, who were separated by a traumatic incident which only one remembers. Produced by Red Mountain Theatre Company, you’ll be challenged to experience our past while looking toward the future. This production is a part of the Hoover Public Library’s 2019 Alabama bicentennial celebration.

Tickets $27.50
