Archives Week 2017 -- Guided Tour of the Unlikely Historians Exhibition

Please join us at the NYC Municipal Archives for a special tour of the exhibition, Unlikely Historians: Materials collected by NYPD surveillance teams 1960-1975. The exhibition features records created during the 1960s and 1970s that provide unique documentation of one of the most turbulent eras in the City’s and nation’s history. The records document organizations such as the Communist Party, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, The American Renaissance Party, Women Strike for Peace and Youth Against War and Fascism and address subjects such as the Vietnam War, the environmental movement, racial and gender discrimination, fair housing, workers’ rights, as well as global issues such as independence and sovereignty, the spread of communism, and poverty.

The tour will offer a glimpse of the curatorial process and include excerpts that are not featured in the exhibition. If you would like to attend this event please RSVP to publicprograms@records.nyc.gov
