Join us this Thursday, April 12th, at 7:00pm for a screening of “At the River I Stand”
In the final months of his life, Martin Luther King, Jr. launched a Poor People’s Campaign to demand economic equality and social justice. On April 4, 1968, King was assassinated in Memphis, where he was supporting a strike by black sanitation workers demanding union recognition, better safety, and decent wages. Join us for a film about this campaign.
The film will be followed by a forum on current struggles for economic justice featuring workers who were fired for organizing a union at a New Jersey nursing home owned by NYU Law School Trustee Daniel Straus and locked-out art handlers from Sotheby’s auction house.
