Birmingham Urban Divide LogoWBHM poses a version of this question to listeners this evening and hopes that many will take part in a question and answer session beginning at 6:30 p.m. Last week our local Alabama Public Radio station put together an excellent series taking a closer look at the region’s Urban Divide, just in time for consideration during our fall elections. If you have not had the opportunity to check out this series yet, take a look at the links that follow the read more link and then tune in this evening (or listen online) while a great panel sits to discuss where we are and what’s next.

Here are the five parts to last week’s Birmingham: The Urban Divide series on WBHM. Links to the audio files are available on each page.

Population Shift
Schools

I was listening to this show and thought it was very interesting. As a (soon to be) young professional with only two more years of college left, I've been wondering whether or not I'm going to stay here or move to a bigger city. I love Birmingham and have made great memories here, but issues like the budget cut for the arts causes me to consider if I want to call Bham my home in my collegiate afterlife.
