Alice’s Ordinary People
Published November 12th, 2019
Please join us on Tuesday, November 19th at 7 pm in the Library Meeting Room for a discussion and screening of Alice’s Ordinary People with documentary filmmaker Craig Dudnick.
Alice Tregay and her husband James met Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1966. They marched with him, often at great personal risk, and worked closley with Reverend Jesse Jackson to fight for human rights.
Tregay’s efforts included the galvanizing of thousands of supporters. The training these “ordinary people” obtained through her political education class had a significant and lasting impact, leading to the election of Harold Washington, the first African-American Mayor of Chicago and ultimately to Barack Obama’s historic election as the first African American President.
The program is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Bedford Free Public Library.
