Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Museum of the City of New York

Visit the exhibition King in New York to learn about Martin Luther King Jr.’s encounters with New York City in the 1950s and 60s as he fought for racial freedom and equality. Then visit the exhibition Activist New York to explore activists today centered on the Black Lives Matter Movement. Taking inspiration from the Civil Rights Movement through today, create your own protest poster to inspire change for an issue that you wish to see improve.


Gender & Justice

Wednesday, January 17, 7:00pm – 8:30pm
The Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Ave at 103rd Street
Host Sarah Maslin Nir sits down with Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Lucy Lang and Reverend Vivian D. Nixon of the College & Community Fellowship to discuss the fraught relationship between gender and justice in New York City – and beyond. While in some ways, New York has set the standard as to how women are treated by the justice system – whether as criminals
or as victims – in other ways, the city’s justice system continues to fail women, particularly in the area of female incarceration.
