ALABAMA STORY
BY KENNETH JONES
Directed by Mairzy Yost-Rushton

Based on true events in 1959 Alabama, this is the story of when a children’s picture book about a white rabbit who marries a black rabbit sparked a fiery standoff between segregationist, Sen. E.W. Higgins (inspired by Sen. E.O. Eddins), and Emily Wheelock Reed, the principled state librarian. Reed made international headlines when she defended “The Rabbits’ Wedding,” a picture book by Garth Williams, best known for his artwork for the “Little House” series and “Charlotte’s Web.” This year marks the 60th anniversary of a tale of social justice that explores romance, courtroom drama, loyalty, and history.
