Join us on Tuesday, November 2 at 7pm for a virtual program with documentary filmmaker Craig Dudnick as he discusses his film about Alice Tregay, voting and civil rights activist from Chicago. Alice’s efforts to educate and urge ordinary people to participate in the election process spanned more than six decades.
Alice met Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he came to Chicago in 1966 to join and amplify black community efforts to end overcrowding and substandard portable classrooms in black neighborhoods.
Alice was also pivotal in the campaigns of local alderman as well the first female African American Senator–Carol Mosley Braun. Alice worked closely with Rev. Jesse Jackson to call out and end discriminatory housing and employment practices and campaigned for him during his presidential bid. Her belief in voter registration and engagement was inspiring. Alice died in 2015.
