Join us for a virtual film discussion and Q&A for the documentary of the film "Evanston's Living History," with filmmaker Craig Dudnick. Presented by the Huntington area libraries.

Evanston's Living History is the story of a people paying a big price for rights and liberties that many of us take for granted; a community whose indomitable spirit influenced the conscience of a nation. Join filmmaker Craig Dudnick for a virtual discussion of his documentary about Anthony Crawford, an African American man who was born into slavery, became a property owner through Emancipation and Reconstruction, and was ultimately lynched in 1916 with the rise of Jim Crow. Follow the lives of Crawford's descendants and their allies as they fight for the passage of United States Senate Resolution 39, which apologized for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation.

We encourage those attending to view the one-hour film prior to the discussion, which is available free with your library card on our Kanopy streaming service or on DVD, and will be shown at the library as a separate event on February 13, 2022 at 3:00 pm. The film will not be shown during this film discussion event. Patrons are encouraged to watch the film, but the presentation can be enjoyed whether or not the participants have seen it.
