Premiere of the Mythic Mississippi Project's film: "Martyr to Abolition and Freedom of the Press. The Legacy of Elijah P. Lovejoy"
This is the premiere of the Mythic Mississippi Project's film, "Martyr to Abolition and Freedom of the Press. The Legacy of Elijah P. Lovejoy." The film is 25 minutes long. Beautifully filmed and well narrated, the film tells the dramatic story of Lovejoy's persistent and passionate opposition to slavery through his role as a newspaper publisher, leading to his murder by a mob in Alton on November 7, 1837. The premiere is accompanied by a panel discussion about the significance of Lovejoy in his time, after his death, and today; the conservation of the Lovejoy gravesite by a historic African American community group, the potential role of Lovejoy in promoting tourism to Alton, and the making of the film.
