School Spirits: Ghost Stories from Alabama's Campuses

On Thursday, October 27th from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Dr. Alan Brown, professor of English at the University of West Alabama, will present a program sponsored by the Alabama Humanities Foundation.  Alabama's colleges and universities have generated a body of ghostlore that reflects the state's long history of higher education, war and racial strife.  Many of the state's signature ghost stories originated in late-storytelling sessions in college dormitories and apartment houses.  Every college campus has at least one resident ghost.  This presentation will focus on Alabama's most haunted colleges and universities and include slides of each site.  Free admission.
