Academy of Honor seeks nominations

The Alabama Academy of Honor is accepting nominations for inductees into the Class of 2021.  

Cynthia Tucker Haynes is inducted into the 2017 Alabama Academy of Honor on Oct. 23, 2017, in the Old House Chamber in the State Capitol.

The Legislature created the Alabama Academy of Honor on Oct. 29, 1965, to bestow honor and recognition upon living Alabamians whose outstanding accomplishments and service have significantly benefitted or reflected great credit on the state of Alabama. 

Recent inductees include Tim Cook, Nick Saban, Condoleezza Rice, Randy Owen, Cynthia Tucker Haynes and Bryan Stevenson. 

Current members of the Academy will elect new members in a ceremony to be held later in 2021. Additional details will be released in the coming months. The Academy is accepting nominations until April 12, 2021.

Nomination forms are available online at AlabamaAcademyofHonor.org or by calling the Academy’s office at 334-242-4441.


Civil Rights Trail app redesigned

The Alabama Civil Rights Trail mobile app has been redesigned and provides a better user experience to explore the history of Alabama’s role in the civil rights movement. Originally released in 2014, the updated app allows for exploration of key landmarks, museums, trails, and public spaces to assist those planning a visit across the state or anyone wishing to learn more from afar.

Users who share their location can learn more about nearby destinations to visit and explore more about civil rights history; bookmarking favorite destinations, media and people offers the ability to continue visits at a later time. 

The app features a media library and an interactive timeline to explore the events of the era. The free app is available in the App Store and Google Play Store.
