Evanston’s Living History

Documentary and Discussion with Filmmaker Craig Dudnick

Evanston’s Living History takes a close look at an African American community’s struggle for justice that extends back to the town of Abbeville, South Carolina and the horrific lynching of one of its prominent citizens, Anthony Crawford. It is a story of Crawford’s descendants working alongside the families of Emmett Till, Michael Schwerener, James Earl Chaney, and Andre Goodman to gain passage of UNited States Resolution 39, which apologized for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation. Following the screening, there will be a presentation by producer and director, Craig Dudnick.
