About the Calabama Peddlers

Through an unconventional form of ecotourism, the CAlabama Peddlers explored the local history, current concerns, and sense of community of the residents of one small city: York, AL (population:3,000). York’s residents shared stories about the region’s development and collapse as a railroad hub, the evolution of the cotton and timber industries, environmental and political concerns, civil rights issues, and yearnings for their city’s future. From these stories, the Peddlers collaboratively created and displayed thought-provoking slogans on a billboard attached to their tandem bike. As the CAlabama Peddlers, marksearch (a wife-husband team), cycled over two hundred miles in Sumter County, Alabama. Our conversations, images, GPS data, and videos are archived on this documentary blog.
