The City of Birmingham has proudly achieved its highest-ever total raw score of 109, on the Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index. Additionally, Birmingham achieved MEI “All-Star” status for its perfect score, despite Alabama’s status as a state without non-discrimination statutes that expressly protect LGBTQ people. The 11th edition of the MEI examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there.

Join us as we gather to celebrate the contributions of families of the Birmingham Civil Rights movement.

You will hear stories never told or seldom shared during a panel discussion from families who were influential during the civil rights movement. The Next Generation panel will feature multiple generations of legacy families: author and speaker Lisa McNair, city councilor Clinton Woods, restauranter Charles Morgan III, attorney Daron Drew Jelks, and recent Howard University graduate Herschell Oneal Hamilton; moderated by historian Barry McNealy.

Hear how these stories help bridge the gap as the next generation keeps their family's history alive. Mayor Woodfin will also be presenting "The Putting People First Award" to Dr. Shelley Stewart, the radio voice of the civil rights movement in Birmingham.
