"Alice's Ordinary People: The Chicago Freedom Movement” is a 56-minute documentary about Alice Tregay, an unsung heroine of the Civil Rights Movement by documentary filmmaker, Craig Dudnick.
Alice’s remarkable story spans the historic period from the marches of Dr. King to the election of Barack Obama. Early on she fought the 'Willis Wagons,' second class structures built to relieve overcrowding in those Chicago schools which served the African American community. But it was through her Political Education class that Alice's had her most significant impact. Over a four year period, thousands were trained to work in independent political campaigns. This new force was integral to the re-election of Ralph Metcalf to Congress, to the election of Harold Washington as mayor, and to making Barack Obama our first African American President. Join us to watch this powerful civil rights film to celebrate Black History month.
The film will be followed by discussion and refreshments. For more information call the library at 472-5948. For more information about the film go to http://imaginevideo.org/alices-ordinary-people/
