Our exhibition City of Workers, City of Struggle chronicles how countless waves of workers – women, immigrants, people of color, and the “unskilled” – have long struggled over pay, power, and inclusion. Inspired by the exhibition, join us for this series of programs that examine how New Yorkers have made and remade city life in ways that still affect us all.
