Museum students—Gary Crosby (far left), a junior political science major at Birmingham-Southern, is part of the inaugural group of Baker Donelson interns at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. The new 10-month annual internship program is an innovative collaboration between the BCRI and a Birmingham law firm to provide local minority college students with an opportunity to study museum science as a career while introducing them to the work of the BCRI. Interns receive a stipend while working in various operations at the BCRI, including exhibits, programming, archiving, and public relations. Crosby began his internship in February in the Archives Department. Pictured with the interns is BCRI Executive Director Dr. Lawrence Pijeaux.
Writer's retreat—Award-winning author Walter Mosley (center), best-known for his Easy Rawlins mystery series, was Books-A-Million Grand Master of the 2008 Writing Today conference held March 7-8 at Birmingham-Southern.

Pictured with Mosley are (from left) Dr. David Pollick, BSC president, and Dr. Peter Donahue, BSC associate professor of English and chair of this year's writer's conference. Writing Today annually brings together locally and nationally known writers, editors, publishers, playwrights, poets, journalists, and other literary professionals for two days of panel discussions and lectures on the literary arts, as well as practical information relevant to the craft of writing.
