Alice's Ordinary People: Film and discussion.

Friday March 2 at 7 pm in Warner Town Hall, 5 E. Main St. Warner.
This program consists of a screening of the 56 minutes long documentary with an introduction by the filmmaker Craig Dudnick, and followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion. It is co-sponsored by the Pillsbury Free Library in Warner, The Warner Historical Society, and the Hopkinton Town Library. Admission is free. Donations accepted. 

In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. came to Chicago. Alice and her husband James Tregay, marched with him, often at great personal risk. It was at this time that Dr. King joined the Reverend Jesse Jackson, and the Reverend James Bevel to form Operation Breadbasket. Breadbasket fought racism on many fronts, but its main task was jobs for African Americans, particularly from those businesses drawing profits from the African American community.

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 as mayor, and to making Barack Obama our first African American President.

The Warner, New Hampshire-rooted Don Guano & the Lo-Fi Rebellion was formed in the summer of 2014. A blend of original, acoustic-electric songs were what followed for a group named after its mandolin player, Don Allard, otherwise known as Don Guano. The lo-fi aspect of the Rebellion's sound has been hard to describe since then. They have played a number of venues in Central NH and are a staple here at the MSW Stage.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Program begins at 7:00 p.m.
The New Hampshire Telephone Museum; Cloues Meeting Room

John Gfroerer explores the power of television as a communication medium and examines the artistic techniques used to persuade, induce, and entice us. Gfroerer considers the extent to which television teaches or simply tantalizes us. Are ethical boundaries crossed by the use of these techniques, and to what extent as media consumers should we care?

​This program is made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
