Yesterday, we interviewed the inimitable Timuel Black for our upcoming documentary on the 1963 Chicago Public School Boycott. Timuel Black is a revered educator, historian, and activist who helped organize the Boycott. Particularly, he helped with the “Freedom Schools,” makeshift classrooms in churches and synagogues throughout the city with Civil Rights-based curriculum for students who were boycotting school. Timuel also participated on the panel at our 50th anniversary celebration of the 1963 Boycott.
