Who Speaks for Birmingham?

On February 5th at 10 a.m., Samuel Pugh, with the Birmingham Civil Rights
Institute, will show a 1961 documentary "Who Speaks for Birmingham?",
reporting on the racial divide between the black and white  communities of
Birmingham.  Residents testify to their conflicted feelings about how
racial integration will affect their lives, with very differing portraits
offered from both the black and white community.  He will then discuss
changes made in the years since that time.
