A portion of Euphonious proceeds, along with the revenue from a special Euphonious after-party to take place in downtown Birmingham, will go to its charity partner, United Ability.

7. Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce Luncheon

Wednesday, June 23 | 11:30 a.m.
Via Zoom

For Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist John Archibald, everything he knows and believes about life is “refracted through the stained glass of the Southern church. It had everything to do with people. And fairness. And compassion.” Now in his new book Shaking the Gates of Hell, Archibald asks: Can a good person remain silent in the face of discrimination and horror, and still be a good person? In it Archibald writes of his complex search, and of the conspiracy of silence his father faced in the South, in the Methodist Church and in the greater Christian church. Now the author will discuss the book at this virtual luncheon hosted by the Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce. Register for free at mtnbrookchamber.org.
