MONROEVILLE – On Wednesday, July 15, 2015, the Monroe County Heritage Museum will again host its annual program, Scenes and Stories of Monroeville:  A “To Kill a Mockingbird” Workshop in the Old Courthouse Museum at 31 N. Alabama Avenue from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.

 

In “Part 1: Growing up with Harper Lee,” the famous author’s classmates and acquaintances share stories and photos of what Monroeville was like in the 1930’s and how closely the fictional setting of Maycomb resembles Monroeville.

 

In “Part 2: Race Relations in the 1930’s,”a panel of Monroeville’s African-American citizens discuss race relations from the 1930’s to the present.  They recall the inspiring stories of great Monroe County citizens who had the courage to stand against all odds to bring equal rights, quality education and voter rights to all citizens.
