Lorraine Morton

On Tuesday, March 19th at 7 p.m. at EHC (225 Greenwood Street, Evanston) a screening of the new film A Life Worthwhile: Lorraine H. Morton will take place, followed by brief remarks and reflections by Dino Robinson, Shorefront founder and director of the film, and Lori Osborne, director of the Evanston Women’s History Project. Educator, Alderman and Evanston’s first African American Mayor, Lorraine Hairston Morton served the Evanston Community for over 50 years, guided by a simple statement her father passed down to her: “only a life of service, is a life worthwhile.” The film documents and honors Morton’s remarkable life and career, and is a production of Shorefront Films. Admission is $10 (free for EHC members). Reservations are recommended, go to www.evanstonhistorycenter.org/all-events.
