Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame

While the south and Birmingham in particular may be more well known for the racial conflict and civil rights movement of the 30’s through the 60’s, the city also has a much more pleasant legacy embedded in its history. That legacy is the development and embrace of the Jazz movement. And the Alabama Jazz hall of fame is a premier place to learn about the music form and learn to appreciate those that went before to firmly establish Birmingham as a jazz capital. Hotels in Birmingham can provide you with venue information and point you to other locations of interest, for those who appreciate the art form.

Music and in particular, Jazz, was a means to bridge the barriers to positive race relations that were so evident in America’s turn of the century social atmosphere. Musicians of all colors, races and creeds could come together to celebrate life, and celebrate a vision for the future, where humanity was united in celebration rather than conflict. Most of the Jazz greats had experiences some of the worst treatment of the dark period in America’s History, and their application of the art form was their way of fighting back against the implications of the overt racism many of them faced daily.

So today the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame stands as an educational leader to the community and nation at large with its celebration of the talents and sacrifices made by the earliest jazz musicians.

In addition to the shows that are put on at the venue, the Carver Theatre for Performing Arts, the Jazz Hall of Fame works closely with the community to advance the notion that we can all get along, and we can all celebrate life. Birmingham hotels are welcoming of visitors who are interested in the more positive aspects of the era such as Jazz, and your Birmingham hotel will enthusiastically point you in the right direction so you can explore this and other avenues of celebration.
