Bicentennial Speaker: Valerie Pope Burnes

June 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Valerie Pope Burnes is an assistant professor of history and former director of the Center for the Study of the Black Belt at the University of West Alabama.

In Visions of the Black Belt, Valerie Pope Burnes and co-author Robin McDonald offer a richly illustrated tour of the Black Belt, the fertile arc that represents the cultural efflorescence of Alabama’s heartland. Like knowledgeable friends, McDonald and Burnes guide readers through the Black Belt’s towns and architecture and introduce the region’s great panoply of citizens, farmers, craftspeople, cooks, writers, and musicians.
