September 7, 2017 - April 30, 2018
31 Chambers Street, NYC 10007 - First Floor Gallery

For more than a century, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) conducted surveillance of individuals and infiltrated organizations challenging the status quo.

During the 1960s and 1970s, they investigated organizations including the Communist Party, Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, The American Renaissance Party, Women Strike for Peace and Youth Against War and Fascism, among others. The records created by the surveillance teams and the materials they collected during the course of surveillance activities now provide unique documentation of one of the most turbulent eras in the City’s and nation’s history. Photographs and objects displayed in the new Municipal Archives exhibit address subjects such as the Vietnam War, the nascent environmental movement, racial and gender discrimination, fair housing, workers’ rights, as well as global issues such as independence and sovereignty, the spread of communism, and poverty.
