About this collection

The goal of the Birmingham Memory Project is to solicit snapshots taken by the public of  Birmingham residents, visitors, and events over a period of many years. It’s an exciting collaboration that will make a free and public online visual history of Birmingham as captured by her citizens.

For 2013, and in honor of the Civil Rights Movement Anniversary, we are especially looking for photos from the 1960’s. While all pictures are welcome (they really are!) those capturing a protest, or voting lines, or pickets, or sit in’s or reactions to events of this time period are of special importance. We want photos suggesting Birmingham in the 1960’s, so if you have anything you’d like to share, even your family sitting on the front porch or simply attending an event in a park, we’d love to include them.

If you have photographs taken by you or your family and you are willing to contribute to this public created online photograph album, please do. You may want to review Photo Ideas and Suggestions for more information.

When you are ready to contribute, please visit the Photograph Contribution form.

If you have any questions, please contact mshelton@bham.lib.al.us.

Thank you!
