Continuing Conversation on Race and White Privilege, August 5, 2019

63 boycott

Please join us on Monday, August 5th for the latest session of our Continuing Conversations on Race & White Privilege with this important chapter in American history and its continuing repercussions. As has become our August “summer social hour” tradition, we will gather for a social hour (with snacks!) beginning at 6pm, with the film following at 7pm.

The documentary film 63 Boycott chronicles the Chicago Public School Boycott of 1963 when more than 200,000 Chicagoans, mostly students, marched to protest the segregationist policies of CPS Superintendent Benjamin Willis, who placed aluminum mobile school units (trailers) on playgrounds and parking lots as a “permanent solution” to overcrowding in Black schools.

Watch the trailer, come on out on Monday the 5th, and deepen your commitment to racial justice. We’d love for you to bring a friend, as well.
