When Col. James Withers Sloss helped move the railroad to a fledgling Alabama steel town in the late 1800s, he set Birmingham on the path to becoming a powerful economic engine for the state. A century and a half later, the Sloss family continues to have an important impact on the Magic City’s development.

“Building Birmingham: The Sloss Story,” a new documentary produced by Jacksonville State University’s Longleaf Studios, tells that multigenerational story. The film premieres on Alabama Public Television on Thursday, Jan. 19, at 8 p.m.
