Remember me, Sue?

Sue Duncan is one of my most important people. In addition to changing the lives of hundreds (even thousands) of poor African-American kids on the Southside of Chicago, she changed the lives of many, many University of Chicago students who, like me, were looking for a way to bridge the “life of the mind” and the “real” world that we passed every day on the way to class – a world that was so close and yet never made it into the content of the curriculum. During my second year of college, I started working with Sue in her center. She and I became great friends over the next 8 years – dog-walking companions, pen pals, and kindred spirits who talked about absolutely everything. Please consider supporting this film project documenting the life’s work of an amazing, caring, warm, quirky, brilliant person!
