Black Cinema House and South Side Projections are proud to present a screening of films about Mayor Harold Washington. Following the film will be a wide-ranging discussion with some of the people who made the films and other people who worked to get Washington elected. The screening includes the film  Running with the Mayor (Community TV Network, 1984, 12 min., DVD), created by Hispanic students of Chicago’s Community TV Network, which follows Washington on the campaign trail and asks whether Washington will be a force for change for Hispanic as well as African American residents.

In conversation: Javier Vargas, who worked on Running with the Mayor as a student; Bill Stamets, the director of Chicago Politics: A Theatre of Power; and others to be determined.
