University of Alabama School of Law

Alabama has many epithets. This is how the state is called the Cotton State (because cotton has always played an important economic role here) or the Yellowhammer State (Goldpecker State).

However, no other name is as fitting for the mentality of the residents as Heart of Dixie, meaning "the heart of the south" in English. The actual name "Alabama", however, is derived from an Indian tribe of the Muskoge family.

Alabama: facts

  • Area: 135,765 sq km
  • Population: 4,779,736
  • Abbreviation: AL
  • Capital: Montgomery
  • Local time: GMT -5
  • Nickname: The Heart of Dixie

Population and residents

The people of Alabama are considered extremely polite and hospitable. The colloquial language is generally quite difficult to understand in the southern states, but in Alabama one maintains a particularly peculiar accent.

But that doesn't change the fact that you quickly feel at home here. Of course, the typical pickup should not be missing in the street scene and overall Alabama is one of the most conservative U.S. states. Almost a third of the population is African-American or Latin-American in origin, the remaining population is mainly white.

Most of the residents belong to the Southern Baptist Convention, while there are also Methodists and Catholics. Agriculture has traditionally played an important role in Alabama. In addition to cotton, corn, potatoes, tobacco and sugar cane are also grown. Since Alabama is heavily forested, the forestry and timber industry is also a significant source of income.

Change and civil rights movement

The plantation economy was previously organized in Alabama as in other southern states through slave farming. By contrast, there was little industry like in the emerging northern states. Alabama was then characterized by tensions between the rich plantation owners and poorer inland farmers. Due to the tradition of keeping slaves, Alabama fought against the northern states in the civil war on the southern side.

And even after the war, Alabama was long reserved towards the north. In the 20th century, Governor George Wallace, in particular, was a prominent politician who stood for conservative content and segregation. In addition, civil rights activists such as Martin Luther King also lived in Alabama and the largest city in the state, Birmingham, was a central location of the U.S. civil rights movement.

For a long time, Alabama was a stronghold of the Democrats, but when they abolished segregation and the Republicans fundamentalized religious content, Alabama became the "Red State".

Important sites of the civil rights movement can be visited today in the Civil Rights District in Birmingham. You can also schedule the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Anyone interested in this topic should also visit Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, where four African-American girls were killed in a tragic attack in 1963.

Alabama is also known for its music and especially for jazz, if you want to know more about it you should visit the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in Birmingham. If you're in town, check out the Birmingham Botanical Garden and the Birmingham Museum of Art (one of the most important museums of this type in the United States)
