About This Event

“For All The World To See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights” presented at the Smithsonian by its National Museum of African American History and Culture

Spotlighting the role of the African American press and its photographers

“For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights” explores the role played by visual images in shaping, influencing and transforming the fight for racial equality and justice in the United States from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s. How visual media changed prevailing ideas about race in America is rarely included in standard histories of the Civil Rights movement. “For All the World to See” fills the void with an exhibition featuring more than 225 objects ranging from rare film footage and vintage TV clips to newspaper photographs and African American magazine covers. The exhibition is organized by the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, University of Maryland, Baltimore County in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
