This acclaimed film documents the remarkable life of Alice Tregay, unsung heroine of the civil rights movement. Hers is the story of ordinary people effecting extraordinary change for human rights over the course of five decades, from the marches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the election of President Barack Obama. Her story is woven together through video recordings and interviews by filmmaker Craig Dudnick, who will introduce the film and tell us how he came to make it. A discussion will follow the screening.
