Documentary: Alice's Ordinary People

Saturday, February 10th at noon


This documentary honors the selfless activists of the Chicago Freedom Movement and features the contributions of Alice Tregay. The filmmaker, Craig Dudnick, hopes that Alice's Ordinary People will inspire future generations to "take up the mantle and continue the fight." Join us at the library to view this hour long documentary and learn about this unique part of American history.

Alice Tregay's life story reads like a history of the Civil Rights Movement. Early on she fought the "Willis Wagons." These second class structures were built to relieve overcrowding in those Chicago schools which served the African American community. Their very existence perpetuated segregation.

In 1966, Dr. King came to Chicago. Alice and her husband, James Tregay, marched with him, often at great personal risk. She also spent months picketing under the leadership of Reverend Jesse Jackson. But it was through her Political Education class that Alice had her most significant impact. Over a four year period, thousands were trained to work in independent political campaigns.

We hope you can join us for this special viewing, hosted by the Craig Dudnick, to learn a bit more about this important part of our nation's history.
