Description

Taking its title from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final speech before his untimely assassination in 1968, this installation of photographs will reflect on the 50th anniversary of this tumultuous year in American history. The more than 40 prints on view in the Museum’s Bunnen Gallery for Photography are drawn in large part from the Museum’s collection of photography documenting the Civil Rights Movement, which is among the most significant in the world. Iconic historical images will be presented with works by contemporary photographers that illuminate the legacy of the movement.
