The Fifth Annual (In)Justice for All International Film Festival presents Kartemquin Films’ 63 Boycott.
Filmmaker Rachel Dickson will be present to answer questions and talk about her experience.
In 1963, 250,000 students boycotted the Chicago Public Schools to protest racial segregation. Unseen 16mm footage of the boycott is combined with insights from the original participants and present-day protesters against school closings. ’63 Boycott connects the forgotten story of one of the largest northern civil rights demonstrations to contemporary issues around race, education, and youth activism
