New York City has a rich history of making headlines for its social activism. The Museum of the City of New York pulls together these controversial issues of centuries past in an exhibition that spans from the 1600s to today. Artifacts, photographs, audio and visual presentations and interactive elements document protests surrounding civil rights, wages, sexual orientation and religious freedom, painting a vivid picture of the City that’s never afraid to take a stand.
