Ghost Stories from Alabama ‘s College Campuses
(Virtual Program on Facebook)
Thursday, October 22,2020
Presented by Alan Brown, Ph.D., professor of English at the University of West Alabama
Alabama’s colleges and universities have generated a body of ghost lore that reflects the state’s long history of higher education, war and racial strife. Indeed, many of the state’s signature ghost stories originated in late-story-telling sessions in college dormitories and apartment houses. Every college campus has at least one resident ghost, but for the sake of time, this presentation will focus on Alabama‘s most haunted colleges and universities.
