DOCUMENTARY AND DISCUSSION with Filmmaker Craig Dudnick

Hear the story of the Evanston, Illinois community’s struggle for justice; with roots extending 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 granddaughter, great-granddaughter, and great, great-granddaughter 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.

Learn about Evanston’s greatest generation, and their courageous fight to free their community from the bondage of racial discrimination, with interviews featuring some of those who lived this history.
