“Alice’s Ordinary People” movie screening and local Civil Rights panel discussion
Saturday, Feb 10th Celebrate Black History Month: Alice’s Ordinary People Screening and Panel Discussion- 1 pm-2:30 pm.
Celebrate Black History Month with Sycamore Library and DeKalb County History Center. Join us at the DeKalb County Community Foundation’s Freight Room to watch a screening of the documentary film Alice’s Ordinary People, a film that shares the story of Chicago Civil Rights activist Alice Tregay; a woman who believes that ordinary people could effect extraordinary change. Director Craig Dudnick joins us to discuss Tregay’s five decades of fearless activism and the continuing relevance of Dr. Martin Luther King and the still-ongoing fight for justice.
After the movie, there will be a panel discussion with local residents who were part of the Civil Rights movement in DeKalb County.
Popcorn will be provided.
This event is partially funded by a generous grant from the DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board.
