Everybody’s Got a Right to Live: The Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 and Today
Tim Shenk, curator

The art and imagery of the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 and today are tools for organizing for justice and dignity. This exhibit challenges myths that blame poverty on the poor and spread a false narrative of scarcity in the world’s wealthiest nation. Gallery Night attendees will be invited to add their voices to a space called “Everybody’s Got a Right to ____.”

Additional exhibits at activities:

Memorabilia from past living wage campaigns, provided by the Tompkins County Workers’ Center

Comic Book Collection from the Comic Book Club of Ithaca

Button Making!
