Ned Fritz Legacy is proud to partner with KERA to present Living With The Trinity.
The documentary details late ’60s/early ’70s plans to straighten and channelize the Trinity River to create a barge canal from Fort Worth to the Gulf. It all hinged on a March 13, 1973 bond election. This event commemorates the 50th anniversary of the canal's defeat which was led by Texas' imminent environmentalist Ned Fritz.
Meet historical figures from the original fight, including Alan Steelman, the maverick Republican opposing the canal whose election as a U.S. Congressman helped seal its fate; Lee Cullum and Bob Ray Sanders, whose coverage for KERA’s respected Newsroom brought essential information to light. On hand will be Fritz family members, Ned's favorite eco-troubador Bill Oliver, and filmmakers Rob Tranchin, Ginny Martin, Sylvia Komatsu, and much of the crew. Chat will all of them at the meet-and-greet. Come early for a networking social to socialize and brainstorm on the Trinity, its issues, and its potential for nature tourism. Peruse tables in the theater lobby from Trinity organizations.
