About The Loyola Project
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. Lucas is also a Northwestern Mutual Intern.
Woven together with archival footage and modern day interviews, this captivating story continues to provide inspiration in the fight for equality.

There, he partnered with Christine O’Malley, and thus, O’Malley Creadon Productions was born! Though his career began as a camera operator at PBS, his aspirations were set much higher and his directorial debut, Wordplay (2006), was the breakout hit at the Sundance Film Festival that year. He’s gone on to direct numerous other feature documentary projects, commercials, television and has sat on panels and juries for various film festivals around the country.
