Tim Pennycuff presents “Order in the Midst of Chaos: The Integration of the Medical Center at Birmingham,” 6-7:30 p.m. in UAB’s Mary Culp Hulsey Recital Hall, 950 13th St. South.

Pennycuff, UAB’s university archivist, took the title of this talk from a letter written by the hospital administrator in 1963, who stated that the community needed “order in the midst of near chaos.” Many of those injured in the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church were treated at University Hospital, and the four children killed on that September 1963 day were brought to the hospital for autopsy.

Pennycuff will talk about the integration of the Medical Center during the years 1962-65. The largely peaceful changes that occurred in the Medical Center were a visible and marked contrast with those elsewhere in the city. He will highlight the work of faculty to end segregation policies in Birmingham and the state.
