News Today | Kate Haug

Irving Street Projects

Artist Kate Haug re-tells the story of the 1968 Poor People's Campaign, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s last monumental social protest prior to his assassination. The exhibition features images and objects culled from Haug's extensive research in the archives of the Associated Press and the Library of Congress, which have not been seen together before, bringing to life the complex ambition of King's vision.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about News Today | Kate Haug :

Huag’s project mines the history of Martin Luther King’s vision quest, the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign, an effort to unite America’s poor across class lines, a cross-section of the population that transcends racial and cultural lines. The campaign concluded with a 3,000-person shanty town constructed on the National Mall;—before there was Occupy, there was Resurrection City. Not to be missed.
