Burr & Forman Celebrates Birmingham's Empowerment Week

Firm News


Burr will be sponsoring an exclusive, invitation only reception Thursday evening at the Birmingham Museum of Art preceding the "Walk to Freedom" concert in Linn Park. The event is part of the city's "Empowerment Week." This five-day event includes festivities to commemorate the milestones that occurred in 1963 during the Civil Rights Movement, part of Birmingham's 50 Years Forward campaign. "A Walk to Freedom: We Remember" begins at 8:00 p.m. in the park and is free for attendees.

"We are pleased to support the City of Birmingham in marking the great strides we have made as a community over the past 50 years," said Lee Thuston, managing partner of Burr & Forman. "We recognize the debt that many individuals 50 years ago paid to pave the way for equality and justice, and we honor these individuals as we celebrate the rich history of our great city."

50 Years Forward marks the coming together of the Birmingham community with "The Movement That Changed the World," and to commemorate those who sacrificed so much. Empowerment Week begins on Wednesday, Sept. 11 with a day of service and includes events such as the National Conference on Civil Rights, premiere movie screenings, civil rights panel with Condoleezza Rice and a special 50th anniversary program of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombings.
