ALABAMA STORY in Indianapolis

Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Creative Team | | Edit

A determined librarian and a segregationist senator face off over an innocent childrens book in 1959 Montgomery, Alabama. Depicting the marriage of two rabbits who happen to have different-colored fur the story has Sen. E.W. Higgins calling for a book ban. But even as the pressure mounts, Indiana raised and educated librarian, Emily Wheelock Reed refuses to yield to censorship. Inspired by true events, Alabama Story is a stirring testament to free expression, just as the civil rights movement is flowering. Political foes, star-crossed lovers, and one feisty childrens author inhabit the same page to conjure a Deep South of the imagination. 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of these true events.
