North Omaha’s Ernie Chambers has been a enlightened, phenomenal and powerful political representative and social leader over the last 40 years. His politics are straight-forward, obvious and spot-on, every single time. He confronts white privilege constantly, challenges injustice regularly and demands respect for the people he serves as a politician.
In 2010, Nebraska Educational Television (NET) created a poignant and honest portrayal of Senator Chambers. I am honored to share it here on the North Omaha History Blog. Its short, so watch the whole thing.
