Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off cover school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Sept. - Dec., Bham: City's 50 Years Forward initiative Programs

 
During Empowerment Week, September 11-15, the City of Birmingham is hosting a series of events in honor of those who lost their lives 50 years ago and those who have fought for civil rights since.
The Birmingham Museum of Art is offering free programs, exhibitions, and events as a part of the City's 50 Years Forward initiative. We hope you will come to the Museum this fall for this important anniversary to reflect, learn, converse, and commemorate.

Acclaimed photographer Dawoud Bey presents an exhibition of portraits, which symbolically commemorates the four young girls and two boys whose lives were lost in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church. Bey photographed Birmingham girls, women, boys, and men, who represent the ages of the young victims at the time of their deaths, and the ages they would be were they alive today. He also created a video shot in locations through the city entitled 9.15.63. The project serves as a memorial to lives lost, a message of hope, and a promise for the future.

Etched in Collective History presents the work of artists who interrogate, depict, and memorialize the Civil Rights Movement. The Movement inspired a number of artists to participate physically, in marches and sit-ins, as well as creatively, through the act of making art. This exhibition presents the work of these artists and the artists who followed, telling a multi-generational story of the Civil Rights Movement. These various perspectives and works form a powerful synthesis of art, relating dynamic responses to our collective history.
