A lot more than iron flowed from those furnaces.
Our whole culture did. Our whole way of life.
In commemoration of Birmingham’s 150th anniversary, Sloss Furnaces has created this video highlighting how the iron and steel industry impacted the growth of the city, and the voices of the men who labored in area blast furnaces and mines.
In celebration of Black History Month, and all the accomplishments of Birmingham’s African-American industrial workers, we are honored to share a short video on African-American labor at Sloss Furnaces and Red Mountain in partnership with Historian Greg Wilson, Lawson State.
