As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, check out UMBC’s online exhibit “For All the World to See,” which focuses on the civil rights movement.
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. Through a host of media—including photographs, television and film, magazines, newspapers, posters, books, and pamphlets—the project explores the historic role of visual culture in shaping, influencing, and transforming the fight for racial equality and justice in the United States from the late-1940s to the mid-1970s. For All the World to See includes a traveling exhibition, website, online film festival, and richly illustrated companion book.
If you’re in Texas, the exhibit will be coming your way on January 28. Be sure to see if it’s making a stop in a town near you!
