Most museum exhibitions about the Civil Rights Movement tend to focus on how images, particularly photographs, documented the struggle. This exhibition at the International Center for Photography asks an entirely different question, not how images documented the struggle, but how in fact, they became agents of change in the struggle.

For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights 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.

    A must see exhibition, I wish I received information before school ended. This would have been a requirement for summer exhibitions. Ms. Summers QPA High School.

    My students were enthralled by this exhibit. Why doesn’t New York have a permanent Civil Rights exhibit?

  • Joan Rosenbaum

    This was an amazing exhibition — one to exhibition to weep and cheer over. The film captures the heart of the story, which is the ability to effect change in the face of tremendous odds.
