Do you know your Tuscaloosa history?

The Tuscaloosa Bicentennial Commission is encouraging residents brush up on the Druid City’s past and present with the help of “Tuscaloosa: 200 Years in the Making” by G. Ward Hubbs.

The commission will host a community-wide discussion on the book at the Tuscaloosa Federal Building and United States Courthouse on Sunday, Sept. 22 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The commission selected “Tuscaloosa: 200 Years in the Making” because it is the first comprehensive history of Tuscaloosa. Hubbs, who is a Tuscaloosa native and professor emeritus at Birmingham Southern College, wrote and released the book to coincide with the bicentennial. It was published by The University of Alabama Press.

Copies of the book are available at local bookstores and can be checked out at the Tuscaloosa Public Library.
