Cost: Free and open to the public
At a time when it was uncommon for college basketball teams to play more than three Black players at any one time, the 1963 Loyola University Chicago Ramblers started four Black players and won the NCAA championship. This team not only revolutionized the way college basketball was played, but also battled and overcame extreme racism both on and off the court.
The Loyola Project, an independently produced documentary film by O'Malley Creadon Productions, tells their story.
A Q&A session will follow the screening to spark meaningful conversations about how the messages in the film relate to our current day struggles in our daily lives whether it be in the workplace, in our schools or in our community with regards to racial discrimination will follow each showing.
This free showing and discussion is sponsored by The Notre Dame Club of the Quad-Cities.
