Did you or someone you know participate in the 1963 Chicago School Boycott? Kartemquin Films filmed the boycott in 1963 and we are searching for participants in this historic event who are interested in sharing their stories for possible inclusion in the '63 Boycott film now in production.
'63 Boycott will feature previously unreleased 16mm footage of the event, along with then and now interviews with organizers and demonstrators who took to the streets of Chicago on October 22, 1963, protesting the segregationist policies of CPS Superintendent Benjamin Willis. 63 Boycott and its companion website will provide a modern perspective on the impact and legacy of this forgotten history 50 years later, reconnecting the participants to each other and the event itself.
