Sometimes not having the words can be even more effective to breaking down barriers than the speech itself.” - Rosemary Johnson, executive director of the @alabama_dance_council. Johnson, a Montgomery native, grew up in Birmingham and later taught in Selma for 23 years before returning to Birmingham. “There are a whole lot of things that are right about Alabama. I’ve been working with the Alabama Dance Council for 17 years and I’m always bringing other artists in from other parts of the country to Alabama and it’s like their eyes are wide open. They had no idea what is here. We need to find ways to share with other people who don’t understand what we are all about because we have a great story to tell. I love Alabama. I love being from Alabama, that’s my favorite part.” Alabama turns 200 on December 14, 2019. We’re sharing stories that celebrate the people, places, and events that form our history every Tuesday.

#Repost @peopleofal ・・・ “Every time I think about the bicentennial, I think about 1968 when I was just a child thinking about what I hoped for the future. I never could have imagined what we are and where we are now compared to when I was a child. It’s been a journey and not many states have been under the microscope the way we have. That’s the exciting part about all of it. We’ve produced an amazing generation of children who are resilient, and ambitious, and hopeful, and resourceful, and I’m so excited about what the next 100 years can bring us. Just think about the amazing people who grew up in Alabama and are doing things across the world and are changing the world. We’re a very blessed place when you think about the natural resources we have here and the gifts we have been given and the talents that we’ve been given. The sky is just the limit. We’re going to shape the world and these kids that we see now are the ones that are going to do it. The bicentennial is important for kids to learn how important their communities are. It’s not just about all the famous people. It’s about what their community has done to change the trajectory of history for the world. It’s the ordinary, regular, everyday people who are making a difference.” Susan DuBose, of Montgomery. DuBose is the Alabama Bicentennial Commission Education Coordinator.

Did you hear? Alabama’s 200th birthday is being celebrated with a new postage stamp! The U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp features art taken at sunset at Cheaha State Park by Alabamian Joe Miller, who took the photo from the park’s Pulpit Rock Trail. The image has Pulpit Rock in the foreground overlooking Talladega National Forest, which surrounds the state park. The stamp also includes the name of the state and the year of statehood. #AL200 #Alabama200 #SharingOurStories #HonoringOurPeople #ExploringOurPlaces
