In 1963, at the height of the civil rights movement, the Loyola Ramblers of Chicago broke racial barriers and changed college basketball forever. Now, nearly 60 years later, this legendary team is reexamined by Loyola basketball player and co-captain, Lucas Williamson. Woven together with archival footage and modern day interviews, this captivating story continues to provide inspiration in the fight for equality. —O’Malley Creadon ProductionsI saw THE LOYOLA PROJECT last night at Loyola Chicago, and this film is an absolute triumph of filmmaking. The cinematography, sound design, animation and voiceover work from Lucas Williamson hook you in the beginning and never let go. This is an incredibly important story and I’m thrilled it’s being told through such a miraculous documentary. I was in tears by the end.
