Does this sound like the Alabama you know?
Of course not! The transcripts of the 1901 Constitutional Convention make the point that the ideas found within the Constitution, while legally eloquent, were morally corrupt.
Most Alabamians today are repulsed by the language used at the Convention, and many amendments have been added to our Constitution throughout the years to reflect more forward thinking.
However, the underlying structure of the 1901 Constitution still limits Alabama in many ways..
