About The Event

Because of his monumental work in the American South for civil rights and the famous March on Washington, his activities and speeches in NYC are often overlooked. Historians suggests that some of his New York speeches were among his most thought-provoking and controversial.  Dr. King visited NYC on numerous occasions between 1957 and 1968, including his visit to Harlem's Convent Avenue Baptist Church just 9 days before his assassination in Memphis. He reportedly was in awe of NYC and felt very welcomed here as he engaged with a wide variety of people and organizations, from Riverside Church to City College of New York and the United Nations.

Join us for this grand tour of Dr. King's visits to NYC!  You will receive a zoom link prior to the event.
