Baker Donelson Spearheads Internship Program at Birmingham Civil Rights Institute


(Birmingham, AL/January 23, 2008)--Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC will partner with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) to fund internships for Birmingham-area minority college students. The program will offer African-American and other minority students the opportunity to learn more about the work of BCRI while introducing students to museology as a professional career.

“Baker Donelson is committed to helping further the BCRI mission to ‘promote civil and human rights worldwide through education,’” says Timothy M. Lupinacci, managing shareholder of Baker Donelson’s Birmingham office. “We have a proud history of supporting the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham, and we want to preserve and continue BCRI’s important work through this internship program.”

Through the Baker Donelson Internship Program, students will have access to educational opportunities, information and resources in all types of museology. The program will provide insight into opportunities for African Americans and other minorities interested in a museology career path and the preservation of history.

The deadline for applications is January 28, 2008. BCRI and Baker Donelson will review applications together, and BCRI will select three students from local area colleges, including The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Miles College, Samford University, Birmingham-Southern College, Stillman College, The University of Alabama, and The University of Montevallo to intern during the 2008 calendar year.

The interns will work within various departments of the BCRI operations, including exhibits and programming, archiving, public relations and community events. As part of the Baker Donelson Internship Program, the interns will help coordinate ongoing communication and interaction between Baker Donelson and BCRI, including at least two hands-on work projects each year.
