Thank you so much for two things in the fall 2017 issue. First, for printing alumnus Jeff Donaldson’s portrait of Miles Davis [“Honoring the Wall of Respect,” Collections, page 14]. Wow. That stopped me in my tracks (no pun intended). Second, for the accompanying article. As a fan of Chicago history, I really appreciated learning about this pivotal community art effort at 43rd and Langley on the city’s South Side in 1967.

Class Note of the Day

Jeff Deutchman ’05 of Los Angeles produced and curated the documentary film 11/8/16, which features the work of 18 filmmakers who each followed a different story throughout the country on Election Day 2016. Co-edited by Jon Lefkovitz ’05, the film follows a cross-section of 16 Americans, each with distinct backgrounds and ideological perspectives. Among the subjects are a Sikh taxi driver in New York City, a coal miner in West Virginia, a military veteran in Miami, a Clinton campaign employee, an Alabama man who was exonerated after 30 years on death row and local Chicago politician Vetress Boyce. The film was released in theaters and on digital platforms in early November. This is Deutchman’s second Election Day film. He also produced 11/4/08, filmed on the day Barack Obama ’06 H was first elected president in 2008.
