Join us for a special online Zoom presentation in celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday!

Between 1910 and 1920, roughly 6,000 people moved to Evanston from Abbeville, South Carolina. Among them were family members of a prominent Abbeville resident, Anthony Crawford (c. 1865-1916).

Join us for a presentation by filmmaker Craig Dudnick whose film “Evanston Living History: The Fight to Escape Racial Discrimination” examines the story behind this migration and its reverberations over the decades.
