Alice's Ordinary People - a documentary screening
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 from 7-9 pm
Alice's Ordinary People is a documentary DVD about Alice Tregay, an unsung heroine of the Civil Rights Movement. Her remarkable story spans the historic period from the marches of Dr. King to the election of Barack Obama. And her great contribution in the field of politics is the thread which connects the two.
Meet Craig Dudnick and learn why and how he came to make the film and the circumstances in Chicago which drew Alice to the Civil Rights Movement. A discussion will follow the screening. Free and open to the public. Registration appreciated but not required.
