Today is the “world premiere” of “Druid City: A Music Video,” a project created by the students enrolled in my The Nineteenth Century City course. For a second year, Tuscaloosa, the city in which the University of Alabama sits, is in the starring role as we delve into emerging urban life here and elsewhere. Along the way, as this photograph by Ben Smith, one of the students, reveals, we remain attentive to America’s more rural and frontier past.

Visit Jemison Mansion, 1305 Greensboro Ave., 5:30-6:30 pm today to see the documentary/music video featuring the music of local band Bible Study. There will be a silent auction of student photography as well. Dr. Robert Mellown, Associate Professor Emeritus of Art History at the University of Alabama, will be our guest speaker.
