50 Years Later: Martin Luther King Jr. Lives on at The New School


Publicado el 16/7/2014

On February 6, 1964, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. took the stage at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu). His appearance marked the start of the American Race Crisis Lecture Series (http://goo.gl/aFZUeV), a for-credit lecture series bringing 16 luminaries of the American Civil Rights Movement together to discuss issues of social justice, integration, and equal access to education. But in time, the talks were forgotten, and the reel-to-reel recordings, press materials, and behind-the-scenes documents sat hidden in the inventories of The New School’s archives. Fifty years later, in February 2014, The New School partnered with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (http://www.nypl.org/locations/schomburg) to present Voices of Crisis, a month-long exhibition and series public programs to commemorate the original lecture series and reflect on the impact of the civil rights movement then and now.
