Sunday, June 19, 2005PBS Documentary, “Paper Trail: 100 Years of the Chicago Defender”
I had the privilege and good fortunate to be invited to a reception and special preview of a WTTW/Ch. 11 documentary, “Paper Trail: 100 Years of the Chicago Defender,” underwritten by ComEd on June 16th at The Goodman Theatre. ComEd president, Frank Clark hosted the reception. The documentary takes a unique look at Black history in 20th century America. It tells the story of Robert Sengstacke Abbott, the Defender’s founding publisher, who single-handedly started “The Great Northern Drive” that forever changed the landscape of America. The documentary premiers on Ch. 11 (WTTW) on June 22, 2005 at 9 p.m. It is a must see.
I’m excited about this documentary because several friends of mines were instrumental in every facet of the production of this documentary; one friend is the producer, while others were either composing and arranging the music or compiling the footage for the documentary. I must say they did a wonderful job - the sneak preview was fabulous. This little preview also gave me the opportunity to rub elbows with some of Chicago's finest citizens (Black & White).
I was told that a more lucrative offer might be coming out of this for some of the people who worked on this project. I will talk about this, as more information is available.
