In the early 1970s, government disinvestment in New York City, coupled with widespread landlord abandonment, gave rise to squatting, urban homesteading, and other forms of self-help housing.

Everybody’s Got A Right To Live: The Poor People’s Campaign 1968 & Now

Thursday, April 18, 2019 - Sunday, June 23, 2019

April 18 – June 23, 2019 Opening reception: Thursday, April 18, 6-9pm

Described as Martin Luther King Jr.’s “last great dream,” the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 was an ambitious movement to make poverty in the world’s richest nation visible and to demand justice for poor Americans. This exhibition provides a look at some of the visual culture of the original PPC, including photographs of marches and rallies, press coverage, and a contemporary public response to a mural in Resurrection City called the ‘hunger wall,’ in addition to showcasing the efforts of the new PPC and a portfolio of Justseeds posters created in solidarity with their actions.
