City of Hope: Resurrection City & The 1968 Poor People's Campaign (An African-American Heritage Month Event)

City of Hope: Resurrection City and the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign is an 18-poster display honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s daring vision for economic justice and opportunity for every U.S. citizen. The exhibition examines the Poor People’s Campaign—a grassroots, multiracial movement that drew thousands of people to Washington, D.C. For 43 days between May and June 1968, demonstrators demanded social reforms while living side-by-side on the National Mall in a tent city known as Resurrection City. City of Hope: Resurrection City and the 1968 Poor People's Campaign is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
