Inauguration Controversy

Inauguration Cartoon

In 2009, the Mobile Azalea Trail Maid organization experienced statewide controversy when they were selected to represent the state of Alabama in the Presidential Inauguration Parade. The Alabama National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) petitioned their selection on the basis that the organization promoted racism and the Confederacy. The Azalea Trail Maids did, however, participate in the parade and are awaiting the results of their application to participate again in 2013.
