September 16, 2015  The Bismarck Tribune  Nonpartisan League Topic of Docu-Drama

By Lauren Donovan

A century ago, North Dakota’s early farmers rose up against the power of banks, railroads and grain dealers and that historic struggle for self-determination will be commemorated at special anniversary events.

The commemorations will center around screenings of the award-winning docu-drama “Northern Lights,” which retells the story of the resulting Nonpartisan League, followed by a panel discussion on the meaning of the movement and its lasting effects.

Sponsors are the Dakota Resource Council, the State Historical Society, Cinema 100, the Dunn County Historical Society, and the South Agassiz Resource Council.
