The Mamaroneck Public Library Hosts Zoom Programs
On Thursday, February 3 at 7pm, Alice’s Ordinary People discussion will take place via Zoom. The program is Co-sponsored with Mt. Pleasant, Scarsdale and Lewisboro Libraries Alice’s Ordinary People is a documentary DVD about Alice Tregay, a woman who refused to stand still for injustice and brought others together to change what was.
Under the leadership of Reverend Jackson, the months that Alice and her “ordinary people” spent picketing led to real change. But it was through her Political Education class that Alice had her most significant impact. Over a four year period, thousands were trained to work in independent political campaigns. This new force was integral to the re-election of Ralph Metcalf to Congress (this time as an independent democrat), to the election of Harold Washington, mayor, and to making Barack Obama, the first African American President.
Patrons are encouraged to watch the film before the Zoom program on Kanopy, but the presentation can be enjoyed whether or not the participants have seen the film.
