Getting Out of the Mud:  The Alabama Good Roads Movement and Highway Administration, 1898-1928

Dr. Marty Olliff, Professor of History and Director of the Wiregrass Archives, Troy University, Dothan

Date and Time:  Thursday, February 8 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Special Collections and Archives, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

With the development of national markets in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Americans began to regard the nation as a whole, rather than their state or region, as the most important political entity.  Many Alabamians wished to travel beyond their local communities in all seasons without getting stuck in the mud of rudimentary rutted dirt roads.   Dr. Olliff explores the history of the Good Roads Movement and how middle-class reformers in Alabama overcame obstacles to construct a road system that would accommodate economic growth in the twentieth century.

Patience Essah Africana Studies Lecture Series

African American Covers of Country Music BEFORE Ray Charles:  Prevalence and Significance

Dr. Tim Dodge, Reference Librarian, History and Political Science Subject Specialist, Auburn University Libraries

Date and Time:  Tuesday, January 16 at 3:30 p.m.

Location:  Ground Floor Auditorium, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

Ray Charles's 1962 release of his "Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music" L.P. is considered a milestone and is regarded as the first successful attempt of an African American artist to record music that was first recorded by a Country artist.  However, it turns out that Charles was by no means the first African American artist to have done so.  Tim Dodge will provide a historical overview of the phenomenon and will explore both the prevalence and significance of this recording activity.  Brief musical examples will be provided to help illustrate this little-known aspect of African American recording history.
