Fall of the Wall

Several Girl Scouts joined CEO Trish Coghlan and other community leaders at the Fall of the Wall event hosted by the AlabamaGermany Partnership at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. This event commemorated the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. College students and other groups decorated replica pieces of the wall with their impressions of the importance of this anniversary. Dr. James Tent and Thomas Hoheisel provided historical notes regarding the events that led up to November 9, 1989 and the significance of this event.
