Description

Black and white photograph of the memorial rally that took place in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in New York City's Central Park. In the photograph, crowds of people are gathering around the Bethesda Fountain in the Bethesda Terrace area of Central Park and the fountain's "Angel of the Waters" statue can be seen in the background. The photographs taken by Douglas Gilbert on this historic day document New York's reaction to the news of Dr. King's assassination in Memphis, Tennessee, on the previous day.
