Elizabeth Peratrovich was one of the most influential civil rights activists in Alaska History and a new PBS documentary, “For the Rights of All,” has been created to share her story. The film blends new interviews with rare historic footage and reenactments and I’m excited to see the faces and names of the many local actors and filmmakers who participated in the production.
On February 16th, Elizabeth Peratrovich Day, there will be several opportunities to see the film. In Juneau, screenings will be held at the Goldtown Nickelodeon, Captiol Building and the UAS Egan Library.
February 16th Screenings
- Goldtown Nickelodeon – 7:00pm
This screening is free and open to the public.
- State Capitol – Butriovich/Farencamp Room – 11:30am
This is a special screening for legislators and staff.
- UAS Egan Library – 5:30pm
The free UAS screening will have fry bread, refreshments and a chance to meet and talk with several of the actors.
