If you had miners in your family, most companies had newsletters with Black and White sections. In the Woodward Mining Company Newsletter of 1949 this article was found the the Black Section. There is information on family's traveling and death. This article was reported from the Dolomite Mine in Alabama.



Birmingham is loosing more and more of their older churches. Passing through one neighborhood near the construction  zone of the new interstate. This church sits empty and several streets have been closed around it.
