Swimming Together is an exhibit exploring local swimming history in Tuscaloosa, including the desegregation of public swimming pools. The exhibit is part of the Flow Tuscaloosa initiative to highlight the successful restoration of Hurricane Creek as inspiration to protect the resources of the Black Warrior River watershed and bring attention to environmental justice efforts in West Alabama.
AHA is proud to sponsor an opening reception for the exhibit on May 21 from 7-10 p.m. "An Evening at the Pool" will provide an after-hours opportunity to visit the museum, see the site's old pool illuminated with special lighting effects, and discuss the exhibit's findings.
Where: Warner Transportation Museum, University of Alabama.
Lead scholar: Dr. Julia Brock, University of Alabama Department of History
