Title

Memorial for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Central Park, New York

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 gathered onstage around an unidentified musical performer playing a guitar in the Naumburg Bandshell, an outdoor concert venue sitting along the Central Park Mall area of the park. 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. Scanned from the negative.
