Special Exhibition

»I have a dream« - these words by Martin Luther King Jr. symbolize the idea behind the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s: the dream of a world without racism and discrimination. The special exhibition »EYEWITNESS: STEVE SCHAPIRO AND THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT« is dedicated to this idea and follows the footsteps of those activists who have fought on the frontlines for the equality of African-Americans.


Within the framework of the exhibition, Museum THE KENNEDYS presents 42 black-and-white photographs of the renowned photographer Steve Schapiro. As an »Eyewitness«, Schapiro documented the crucial moments of the Civil Rights Movement between 1962 and 1968. Among them the legendary Selma-to-Montgomery-March of 1965.
