THE DIGNITY OF RISK: The Same Qualities that Made Birmingham Great Can Make it Greater Still

by John C. Henley III

Birmingham, Alabama: privately printed by Birmingham Publishing Co. (1963), 2nd printing (1st printing was in 1963), pp 7, self covers. Pamphlet.

Birmingham publisher and scion of one of the city's oldest families offers a 5-point plan for building Birmingham back up (along with the city's self image which was taking quite a beating because of its intransigence during the 1960s Civil Rights movement). His plan, however, was little more than vague hype and cheerleading and the city really needed more than that at the time. He DOES make a brief but nice "concrete" reference to some of the work being done by Richard Howard, Director of the Birmingham Museum of Art. There are only a couple of very oblique references to the Civil Rights movement but one DOES get the feeling that Henley was quite put out by the die-hard Bull Connors of his day so his association with black Birmingham author Geraldine Moore in 1960 must have opened his eyes a bit to daily horrors and insults being foisted off onto the Birmingham Black community by most of the city's leadership.

An interesting - if rather vague - period piece but of some importance because of the source. It's as if Henley was totally frustrated at what was going on in the city but just didn't quite have the same degree of outspoken courage of a Sidney Smyer, a James Head or a "Peach" Taylor.  

Very Good.

WE REGRET WE DON'T SHIP OUT OF USA; SORRY, BUT NO EXCEPTIONS.

FREE SHIPPING via well packed, cardboard and plastic-protected 1st class mail

Now that I'm finally offering paypal, please pay promptly:  Winner's payment should reach me within 7 days; eBay wants to be notified of slow- or non-payers soon thereafter so NON-PAYING BIDDER ALERTS ARE FILED ON THE 8th day following the auction IF I'VE HAD NO CONTACT FROM YOU SINCE AUCTION'S END. That gives you just 7 more days to pay without a NPB strike. Delayed? Then email me - I'll try to work with you when necessary but please don't expect me to do so in a vacuum. 

PLACING A BID IS THE ETHICAL EQUIVALENT OF ACCEPTING THESE TERMS. PLEASE DON'T ASK TO ALTER THEM AFTERWARDS. In return, as our feedback clearly shows, we'll get your item(s) to you, as described, in a safe, timely manner. Thanks!

Then please do yourself a favor and click on the about me icon above under seller information and read how to protect yourself and your bank account from misleading or misinformed (and occasionally even deceitful) descriptions of the so-called "first edition" or "true first edition" of that great Alabama novel.

Thinking of bidding on a copy of STARS FELL ON ALABAMA by Carl Carmer? That's another Alabama book about which ebayers are often misled or misinformed:

Do yourself a another favor and - again - click on the about me icon above under seller information and read how to protect yourself and your bank account from misleading or misinformed (and occasionally even deceitful) descriptions of the so-called "first edition" or "true first edition" of one of the best NON-FICTION books ever written about Alabama.
