Description

NYC PREMIERE As the city’s first African American mayor, Harold Washington’s 1983 election victory signaled the dawn of a new era in Chicago. Washington’s organizing prowess galvanized a multiethnic coalition in the city, but subsequently garnered racist backlash from the political elite. A man on the vanguard of progressive politics, Washington’s untimely death was a major blow to an emergent movement; his life, however, served as an inspiration for generations to come. - Brandon Harrison

The November 13th screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Joe Winston, Producers Raymond Lambert and Sonya Jackson and the November 18th with Producer Raymond Lambert.
