Stories of the Poor People's Campaign: Documentary Screening and Listening Session

In 1968, individuals from across the country traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the Poor People's Campaign and live within Resurrection City. Join Ann Scherer, for a screening of her husband Ed Scherer's documentary "On the Case" which captures the voices and images of these travelers and participants. During this event, DC Public Library staff will also share Poor People's Campaign recordings from the Bruce Jackson collection and the current work of artist-in-residence, Anu Yadav.
