FAIRVIEW, N.J. -- The Fairview Library will screen "Alice's Ordinary People," a documentary about Civil Rights activist Alice Tregay from from noon to 2 p.m. Friday.

It tells the story of Alice Tregay, who became politically active in the 1960s, when there were relatively few women in public leadership roles. Viewers will learn about Tregay's early advocacy in equal housing, school integration and Operation Breadbasket, which became Operation Push in 1971.

She started the political education division within Operation Push in 1971 and taught thousands of students how to organize citizens and lead political campaigns.

Tregay often was a campaign leader in mayoral and presidential elections.

The Fairview Public Library is at 213 Anderson Ave.
