For All the World to See in the News

For All the World to See, an exhibition at New York’s International Center for Photography that was organized by the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture at UMBC, was recently featured on PBS and NPR. The exhibition details the way that images became agents of change in the Civil Rights struggle.

Maurice Berger, a senior research scholar at CADVC who curated the exhibition, points out that this exhibition features images from the 1920s and 30s to the 1970s. This time period is much longer than the usual for Civil Rights exhibitions, which generally stretch from the 50s to the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. Berger says that, looking at the images collected in the exhibit, it is clear that the movement lasted longer than that.

Images from the exhibit and an interview with Berger were featured on PBS’ Sunday Arts segment. Click here to see the full-length video of the segment.

For All the World to See was also profiled by NPR’s Margot Adler on Weekend Edition Sunday. The piece, called “The Power of Pictures in the Struggle for Civil Rights,” is available in audio and text here.
