Overview


A diverse community of inquiry and pride in central Alabama.
 
“The voices speak about what it means to be a black college, what it means to be Alabamian by birth or migration, southerness from insider and outsider perspectives, and community in a historical vacuum of islandism. The voices speak about faculty roles and responsibilities in the changing landscape of higher education and generational spurts in the student population. The voices speak about unintelligible whisperings of unknown and unnamed things that may or may not exist. To the extent that Creating Community gives voice to any one of these areas of comment, it fills a great gap in our knowing and serves a most useful purpose.”-- M. Christopher Brown II, author of The Quest to Define Collegiate Desegregation

With contributions by:  Robert Ely, Janice R. Franklin, Jennifer A. Fremlin, Sunita George, Kathy Dunn Jackson, Virginia M. Jones, Annie P. Markham, John Moland Jr., Frank E. Moorer, Elaine M. Smith, Margaret Holler Stephens, Karl E. Westhauser
