When Poor People Marched on Washington
Start Date: 4/23/2018Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/23/2018End Time: 1:00 PM


The Poor People’s Campaign—held in Washington, D.C., during the spring of 1968—has long been overshadowed by the assassination of its architect, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the political turmoil of that year. While the campaign did not achieve its lofty goals, including a rededication to the War on Poverty, it did prove to be an illustrative moment of a "long" civil rights movement that highlighted the essential, yet often forgotten, objective of economic justice.

This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required.
