The Birmingham Ghost Walk

Birmingham

The Birmingham Ghost Walk is our signature tour and is the one that started it all for us. So much dark and interesting tidbits, along with tales of intrigue and woe, are contained within the pages of our history. For 2018 there will be two different tours just to tell it all! You do not have to go on the tours in a specific order! Take the second one first if you want! It is a completely different set of tales of dark history! These evening, lantern lit tours cover all of the dark and interesting history that began right with the founding of our “city in the midst of the wilderness” and continue right through the Civil Rights Era of the 1960’s (although most of the tales pre-date The Great War). Come. Grab a bit of shadowy darkness…and walk with us.

For weeks, the streets of downtown Mobile are filled with the sights and sounds of live marching bands, brilliantly colored floats and, of course, teeming crowds of parade-goers. The floats are glowing spectacles manned by masked riders festooned in satin and sequins, and armed with crowd-pleasing "throws" such as beads, MoonPies, doubloons and candy. Mardi Gras must be experienced to be fully understood, and Mobile is the perfect place.

Two Henrys

Birmingham

Fifteen years after the death of his partner from AIDS-related illness, fortysomething New Yorker Henry learns of the death of his would-be father-in-law and travels to Florida for the funeral, ambushing his partner’s mother and sister with well-meaning, if audacious, kindness in their time of grief. In the house that he was never welcomed to visit before, conversations bitter, tender and revealing transpire between a man who needs a mother, a mother who needs a son and a sister who seems to only need a drink. A humor-laced drama about familial silence, implacable grief, Midwestern temperaments and what we’re afraid to talk about. A glimpse at what happened between the dusk of the worst of the AIDS crisis and the dawn of marriage equality.

26th Annual Trail of Tears Commemorative Motorcycle Ride®

Bridgeport

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 called for the voluntary or forcible removal of all Indians from the eastern United States to the state of Oklahoma. May of 1838 marked the deadline for voluntary native removal. So began the Cherokee "Trail of Tears," one of the darkest episodes in relations between the United States and Native Americans. As many as 4,000 deaths occurred because of this forced removal of civilized Native Americans from their rightful homes. In the end, members of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole nations suffered the same fate as the Cherokees. Join us as we honor those from the past who traveled this Trail of Tears as we ride the Drane/Hood Overland Route. Let us learn from this mistake, accept each other as we are, and ride together in peace.
