Please save this date: Thursday, Aug. 7, at 7:30 p.m., and join the Birmingham History Center and its community partners in a live game show on stage at the Virginia Samford Theatre.
A dozen of Birmingham’s best known, or should we say “best knowing,” figures from politics, media, academia, and culture have agreed to play “Can You Repeat That?” the game where history repeats itself in the form of questions, bluffs, riddles, and puzzles, all having to do with the Magic City’s varied history.
Here are the 12 Birmingham leaders who have agreed to go the four rounds with us. Pound for pound, we think they are equally ranked:
John Archibald, Kyle Whitmire, Frank Stitt, Laura Kate Whitney, James Spann, comedian Chris Davis, Glenny Brock, Richard Arrington, Jay Roberson, and from two major Birmingham universities, Randy Law of Birmingham-Southern College, and Pam King of UAB.
You can play along, beginning now
One of the game rounds will be based on guessing the top answers to survey questions about Birmingham. This is where our readers can help. Please click on the orange banner to take our survey and share it with your friends. Then come to the show August 7 and see how well our contestants perform.
The show is being generously assisted by the Virginia Samford Theatre, museum supporters, and the abundant knowledge and expertise of bhamwiki.com publisher John Morse.
