Thanks to Tim Higgins and music critic Ann Powers, Bible Study (Higgins is a member of the band) is allowing us to feature their song “Druid City” in the video. I love this tune (Druid City is one of Tuscaloosa’s nicknames owing to trees planted here in the 1840s, if memory serves).
More good news: the Jemison Mansion, as mentioned in my most recent course blog post, has agreed to host this event. Also, on Nov. 3 our efforts are being honored by the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society. I appreciate these opportunities to be a scholar and an artist, learning with the students. All the while, I cautiously share our experiences. For sure, the students’ inspire as their generation is far more comfortable than mine with social media. I may get there. One day. I think.
