Poster Exhibition: City of Hope: Resurrection City and the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign

City of Hope: Resurrection City and the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daring vision for economic justice and opportunity for every U.S. citizen. The poster 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.

This display will be available for viewing in the Great Hall at the Pflugerville Public Library from January 10 to January 23 during library operating hours.
