Alabama's French Connection

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

The Alabama Department of Archives & History is introducing a weekend series on Alabama’s French Connection. The celebration will educate people on the long shared history between Alabama and France. Speakers include historians and Alabama natives alike. Cartledge Blackwell, Dona Bohanan, and Kathryn Braund will be a few of the main lecturers. A docent of the Department of Archives said, “This is a great way for Alabamians to learn about a portion of our history which spans over three centuries. Not many people realize how many of our cultural influences come from our French connection.” Attendees will be educated on topics such as Mardi Gras, French architecture, and Fort Toulouse.
