Collective Perspectives: Urban Studies and the Art of Filmmaking, Vulcan Park

Come on out this Tuesday to celebrate Birmingham’s traditionally African-American communities and culture through an engaging set of short films produced by students in UAB’s Ethnographic Filmmaking course. Presented by Michele Foreman, UAB Center for Urban Affairs.

Part of the Collective Perspectives 2008 series.

About the series:

Vulcan Park and Museum is proud to present Collective Perspectives 2008 in honor of Black History Month, a series of non-traditional programs designed to educate, entertain, and enlighten participants on the cultures that have made Birmingham the culturally diverse, compassionate and flourishing city that we are today. The Terminal is happy to be serving as a partner in presenting this series.

Join us every Tuesday in February from 5 – 7 p.m. and enjoy African-inspired foods during an energizing social hour and then explore the fabric of our neighborhoods during a one-hour program. Learn about the experiences of Black Americans in our society, the vital role this community has played throughout our shared history and draw inspiration from their important messages.

Free for Vulcan Park Foundation members; $5 for non-members
