This Thursday, November 15, For All The World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights opens at the CADVC and will continue through March 10.
For All The World To See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights, curated by Maurice Berger, is the first comprehensive museum exhibition to explore the historic role played by visual images in shaping, influencing and transforming the fight for civil rights in the United States. Through a host of media –including photographs, television, film, magazines, newspapers, posters, books and pamphlets– the project explores the historic role of visual culture from the late 1940’s to the mid 1970’s.
Join us at the opening reception –free and open to the public– beginning at 5 pm.
A preview of the related piece For All The World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil Rights will debut alongside the exhibition at 12:00 noon, in the UMBC Sports Zone (in the Commons).
For All the World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil RIghts is a spellbinding humanities project in which approximately a dozen Baltimore area seniors will communicate personal stories about their involvement with the struggle for civil rights. A community outreach program of the CADVC, the project brings diverse seniors together for a series of oral history interviews.
This preview will kick off the exhibition’s four month tour, ending in February 2013, which includes performances at venues including museums, libraries, parks and college campuses.
