The Birmingham City Council recently approved $40 million in general obligation warrants and refinanced bonds, and that means there’s capital funding for several projects throughout the city, like new stairs for the central library downtown. More projects are getting a cut of the money, too.
Birmingham offers many ways to learn more about the Civil Rights movement, and to celebrate Black History Month. A visit to Birmingham can be a sobering, reflective and finally an uplifting experience for anyone interested in this period of our country’s history.
Top 10 Things to do in Birmingham
August 23-29 Edition
I found way too much to go out and experience this week! So I’ll use this opening paragraph to plug a short film in Sidewalk that I couldn’t write a whole article on (because it had next to no connections with Birmingham, not because it didn’t deserve a whole article): Pavels Gummenikovs’ “Just Go” feels like Baby Driver minus the Hollywood corporatization. Trust me, watch it! I should also probably mention the mayoral election happening today (not Wednesday!), make sure you vote there if you’re eligible.
