Evanston's Living History film screening and discussion with Craig Dudnick

Next Event: Mon, Sep 23, 2019, 06:30pm08:00pm

Join us for a screening of the documentary, Evanston’s Living History. Evanston's Living History takes a close look at an African American community's struggle for justice that extends back to the town of Abbeville, South Carolina and the horrific lynching of one of its prominent citizens, Anthony Crawford. It is the story of Crawford’s descendants working alongside the families of Emmett Till, Michael Schwerener, James Earl Chaney, and Andrew Goodman to gain passage of United States Senate Resolution 39, which apologized for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation. Following the screening, there will be a presentation by producer and director, Craig Dudnick.
