ABOUT THE FILM

Born in 1929, civil rights activist Alice Tregay was best known for fighting segregation in Chicago schools. She marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in the 1960s to improve educational opportunities for blacks. She directed local and national voter registration campaigns under Operation Breadbasket, which worked to improve job opportunities for African Americans. In the 1990s, she marched in Washington D.C. to demand that Congress and the White House create jobs. She received many prestigious awards for her outstanding work in civil rights and community service, most notably one presented in March of 2004 by young Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, who would become the 44th President of the United States and the first African American to hold that office.

The screening will take place at the Carroll County Arts Center, 91 West Main Street, Westminster, MD. A Celebrating America program.

NAACP STATEMENT ON ENDORSEMENTS OF POLITICAL CANDIDATES OR PARTIES BALTIMORE, MD – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and does not endorse candidates or political parties, or engage in direct campaigning.

As the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization, the NAACP actively works with our more than 2,000 branches to inform and encourage civic engagement through voter registration activities and public forums, and actively opposes voter discrimination and other policies that make it more difficult for citizens to cast their ballot.

The NAACP works to educate all political candidates to support policies that improve access to quality education and economic opportunity, criminal justice reform, the environment, healthcare and youth empowerment, with a dedication to removing race-based hatred and discrimination from society.

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities.
