Jane Addams Celebraion Day

December 10th, 2007

This past fall, Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared the Nobel Peace Prize for their work on counter-acting global warming. On December 10th, Illinois is celebrating the day the first American woman won the Nobel, Chicago’s own Jane Addams. In 1931, Addams received the Nobel for her involvement in the peace and women’s suffrage movement. Her life-long dedication to social reform and philanthropy is best symbolized by her creation of the Hull House Association. Addams’ compassion and tolerance during an era of great cultural change and economic shifts inspired change around the nation. She remains today one of the most important social activists around economic justice and basic human rights.Tonight on Community, Media & You, we’ll have a very special conversation with Jane Addams and take a look at her legacy and the impact she had on so many people’s lives.Your host is Thom Clark of the Community Media Workshop @ Columbia College and joining in on the discussion is Jane Addams.
