Michael Pleger, longtime pastor of Chicago’s St. Sabina parish, has consistently used the power of his pulpit to battle social inequity, engaging in high profile campaigns to end drug-dealing, prostitution and exploitation of liquor and tobacco companies. This award-winning film captures the charisma of the crusading priest and his controversial ‘gospel of the streets’. We are pleased to have Father Pfleger; the film’s Producer/Director, Bob Hercules, and Bob McClory, author of the book “Radical Disciple,” join us for a discussion following the film.
