Attendees will learn:
This program is brought to you by The University of Alabama, College of Continuing Studies, the Historic Black Towns and Settlements Alliance, Inc. and Spelman College.
The Historic Black Towns and Settlements Alliance, Inc. is a consortium of historic and culturally significant towns and settlements throughout the region and nation. The cities and towns in the alliance function with limited resources and therefore are seeking university partners to engage with their communities and support a variety of goals set by their citizens. Several times each year, university partners provide professional development opportunities for the towns’ leadership. In these meetings, university scholars and professional staff provide workshops and strategies for tourism, economic development, fundraising, historic preservation, etc.
