Long Island Housing Services hosts MLK art show

April is Fair Housing Month and in recognition of that, the nonprofit Long Island Housing Services will host "The Chicago Freedom Movement," a free exhibit showcasing some color photos of Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights activists in Chicago of the mid-1960s.

The photos will be on display from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Apri. 30 at the Touro Law Center in Central Islip. They were taken from 1965 to 1956 by Bernard Kleina, a civil rights and fair housing advocate who's now the executive director of the Hope Fair Housing Center in Illinois.

Kleina and his exhibit will help Long Island Housing Services, which investigates housing discrimination, celebrate its 40 birthday.

The nonprofit will host a $50 per person luncheon after the exhibit, with speakers discussing "Fair Housing's Future in a Crisis Economy: A New Decade of Challenges."
