Alamance County Moral Monday photo blog

Alamance County has been hopping recently with progressive activity. Though it's a often a red county, it is nestled on 40 between the Triangle and the Triad. It went blue for Senator Hagan last time. It's home to Elon University. And in the past week they've been busy.

Here are a few photos from a Story of America film and discussion in Saxapahaw last week and from a Moral Monday in Burlington earlier today featuring speakers on voting rights, women's rights, immigration reform, LGBT equality with support from the local LGBT student group at Elon and the Alamance County PFLAG, other important issues, and Rev. Gatewood as the keynote speaker from the NAACP.


Arts in Alamance

I often think of Burlington as the place to get my Biscuitville fix when heading to Winston or Charlotte, after all it started there, but I'm starting to see there's a lot more to the area, and it has a lot of voting and cultural potential in the years to come. Here's just one example of a cool thing going on there:

Hailed as one of CNN's top 10 Global must-see exhibitions and currently breaking museum and gallery attendance records world-wide, Nathan Sawaya's The Art of the Brick® will open at the Alamance County Arts Council's Captain White House and the Children's Museum of Alamance County August 3 - October 31, 2013.

This looks pretty cool too:
