OK, I admit I am a sucker for documentaries. They’re like the news – but more thoughtful.
So this event – being held at our main library on South St. on Saturday afternoon – is right up my alley.
Not only will I get to see a film about Civil Rights leader Alice Tregay (titled Alice’s Ordinary People) the filmmaker is holding a discussion.
Filmmaker Craig Dudnick wrote about Tregay: “… 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. This new force was integral to the re-election of Ralph Metcalf to Congress (this time as an independent democrat), to the election of Harold Washington, mayor, and to making Barack Obama, our first African American President.”
