Reflections on My Life in Alabama History
Overview:
ArchiTreats: Food for Thought celebrates the Year of Alabama History through a series of sequential lectures in Alabama history by leading experts in the field. Join us as Wayne Flynt presents Reflections on My Life in Alabama History. This presentation was held at the Alabama Department of Archives and His tory. Wayne Flynt perhaps is Alabama’s best‐known living historian. While many people know him through his teaching and writing, few are aware that he was a minister before he became a historian. Living in Alabama for more than half of the twentieth century, Flynt viewed and studied events through a ‘double vision’ of historian and minister. In this presentation, Flynt will reflect upon and suggest an ethical vision for the long sweep of Alabama history. He will examine how the state failed to fulfill its own moral vision, and how that failure crippled the state. At the same time he will suggest positive aspects of the e. state, focusing on its attachment to tradition, community, family, honor, and endurance. Wayne Flynt has lived in Alabama most of his life, growing up in Birmingham, Dothan and Anniston. He holds degrees from Samford University (formerly Howard College) and Florida State University. Flynt is Professor Emeritus, having served as chairman of the History Department at Auburn University. He is the author of eleven books, including Alabama in the Twentieth Century and the Pulitzer Prize‐nominated Poor but Proud: Alabama’s Poor Whites. He is co‐author of Alabama: A History of a Deep South State, which also was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. He also serves as the editor‐in‐chief of the o nline Encyclopedia of Alabama. This ArchiTreats presentation is made possible by the Friends of the Alabama Archives and a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The public is invited to bring a sack lunch and enjoy a bit of Alabama history. Coffee and tea will be provided by the Friends of the Alabama Archives. For more information, call (334) 353‐4726.
