Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones
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.
The Library Theatre is sponsored in part by the City of Hoover and the Friends of the Hoover Public Library.
The Library Theatre is a professional venue bringing world-class entertainment to an intimate setting in the heart of Hoover.
