Although living in such different social scenes, this exhibit focuses on the overlapping trajectory of both the lives of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. The exhibit “explores their deepening ties as well as how their interests expanded beyond civil rights and organized crime to encompass shared concerns for the poor and opposition to the war in Vietnam.”
Images taken by some of the most renown photojournalists of that era will be featured.
The exhibit will be held at the New York Historical Society. Full-price tickets can be purchased at $21 for adults, $6 for kids ages 5 to 13, $13 for students, and $16 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased from the New York Historical Society’s website.
The NYHS is open Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Mondays.
