Historic Cane Hill, Inc. presents “City of Hope: Resurrection City and the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign”, from February 15 through April 4. The exhibition honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s final and most ambitious vision that each U.S. citizen have equal access to economic opportunities and the American dream. It examines the Poor People’s Campaign – a grassroots, multiracial movement that drew thousands of people to Washington, D.C. For 43 days between May and June 1968, demonstrators demanded social reforms while living side-by-side on the National Mall in a tent city known as Resurrection City. Organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, “City of Hope” highlights a series of newly discovered photographs and an array of protest signs and political buttons collected during the campaign. The exhibition will help visitors engage and contextualize the Poor People’s Campaign’s historical significance and present-day relevance. The exhibition is anchored by 18 posters, each accompanied by an interpretive panel in the Spanish language. A highlight of the exhibition at Historic Cane Hill will be the inclusion of a life-size reproduction of one of the plywood tents constructed in “Resurrection City” for use during the Washington, D.C. occupation. Visitors are encouraged to enter the tent, travel back in time, and contemplate life in Resurrection City and the relevance of the events of 1968 to our lives today.
