WE THE People
Alabama's Defining Documents
A Bicentennial Exhibition of Our State's Six Constitutions
Presented by the Alabama Department of Archives & History
In 2019, all six of the state's constitutions were on view together in a special exhibition presented by the Archives in commemoration of Alabama's bicentennial.
We the People: Alabama’s Defining Documents explored Alabama’s two-hundred-year conversation about citizenship. Whose voice matters? What do we value? These documents, written on fragile parchment, define what it meant, and what it should mean, to be an Alabamian.
The exhibition also highlighted intensive conservation work recently completed on the constitutions.
