Details:This traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian illuminates the often-overlooked history of the multicultural movement to confront poverty that redefined social justice and activism in America. Solidarity Now! 1968 Poor People’s Campaign has been organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. What was the Poor People’s Campaign? In 1968, thousands of people built a protest community and for nearly six weeks, inhabited “a city of hope” on 15 acres of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to call the nation’s attention to the crippling effects of poverty for millions of Americans. The protest site was called Resurrection City. This multiethnic movement included African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, Asians and poor whites from Appalachia and rural communities. Along with the protest community in Washington, D.C., there were demonstrations nationwide. The campaign leaders presented demands to Congress, including demands for jobs, living wages and access to land, capital and health care.
