“Stonewall 50” Tour of Greenwich Village, with the Municipal Art Society
April 14, 2019 | 2:00pm-4:00pm
]In celebration of “Stonewall 50” — a year-long commemoration of the landmark 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn — join co-director Ken Lustbader and project manager Amanda Davis for a walking tour of Greenwich Village. Learn about key places and people of the pre- and post-Stonewall LGBT civil rights movement and their lasting impact on American culture. The tour will also highlight the importance of these sites to a marginalized community that oftentimes had nowhere else to go to fully be themselves. Stops will include places connected to such groups as the Mattachine Society, Gay Liberation Front, and Salsa Soul Sisters, and to LGBT activists, artists, and business owners who found refuge in the Village.
Hosted in partnership with the Municipal Art Society.
