It's a Thick Book

Shelby Co. Manager Alex Dudchock and Commissioner Ted Crockett
LWVGB members gathered at the Homewood Library on March 29 for a screening of the new documentary by Lewis Lehe, “It’s a Thick Book.”

Using wry humor and serious research, “It’s a Thick Book” traces the history of our voluminous 1901 Alabama State Constitution from its shady inception to its current tangle of almost 800 amendments.  If you missed our viewing, check the Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform website at www.constitutionalreform.org for information on other screenings and how to order a copy of the DVD.
