King in New York: a New Martin Luther King Jr. Exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York

King in New York is a new exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York which traces and highlights all of the civil rights leader's encounters with the City between the early 1950s through his 1968 assassination.

The exhibition’s historic images chronicle King’s sermons in churches and speeches to the United Nations, his discussions about race relations with New York City’s mayor, and his relationships with New York’s own networks of activists. Together, they reveal a lesser-known side of King’s work and demonstrate the importance of New York City in the national civil rights movement.
