Becoming Alabama: Immigration and Migration in a Deep South State
Please joins us January 20-21 for a public symposium on immigration and migration in Alabama. Isabel Wilkerson and Carmen Agra Deedy headline a roster of presenters who will provide historical context for the people who came to, left, and moved within Alabama over the last two hundred years.
Becoming Alabama: Immigration and Migration in a Deep South State will take place at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. It will feature scholars and professionals exploring immigration and migration from Spanish exploration to the 1813 Creek War through the present.
A genealogy workshop will kick off the conference from 1 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 19. Presenters will introduce family research and focus on using the census for both African American and Native American genealogies. The workshop is co-sponsored by OLLI at Auburn, and may be registered for separately.
