Though national leaders of the Civil Rights Movement may loom large, the everyday activists working at the ground level were no less important. Alice Tregay and other members of the Chicago Freedom Movement played an integral role in the national struggle for Civil Rights. And though they may not appear in many history textbooks, their accomplishments changed the course of American history.
Join us to view "Alice's Ordinary People," a documentary by filmmaker Craig Dudnick that details the extraordinary things that can be accomplished through grassroots community activism. Craig Dudnick will also be present to discuss the film and the way that ordinary activists influenced the course of history during the struggle for equality in the 1960s.
