Bettina Byrd-Giles gets you thinking. She gets you thinking about the origin of your family’s name, about your heritage and about the variety of backgrounds represented in Alabama yesterday and today. In her Road Scholars Speakers Bureau presentation “The Cultural Evolution of Alabama,” Mrs. Byrd-Giles shows us that the 22nd state is not monocultural.
In fact, Alabama is extremely diverse and its population has grown as a result of globalization. As an interculturalist, Mrs. Byrd-Giles encourages us to think about where we came from, and to open our eyes to see our state as it is, with its diverse group of peoples.
AHF proudly offers Road Scholars Speakers Bureau presentations like this to civic groups, universities, corporations and the public on a variety of humanities topics. Designed to educate and entertain, the programs are presented by Alabama’s most enlightening university and independent scholars.
