The fall issue of UMBC Magazine features a three part feature on For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights. The text, written by CADVC research professor and chief curator Maurice Berger, analyzes a selection of objects in the exhibition. There is also a profile of and an interview with Dr. Berger, but the interview appears only in the online version.
The exhibition has been touring the US since 2010 when it opened in NY. Both the exhibition and the book, by the same title, have won many accolades, including a tour through the NEH on the Road initiative, which travels sponsored exhibitions nation wide. More info is available--as well as a virtual exhibition version of the project--on our website at foralltheworldtosee.org.
As UMBC anticipates the exhibition finally coming "home" to CADVC this November 15, 2012 through Mar. 10, 2013, we have planned a number of related programs throughout the coming months.
For more information on our related oral history program, For All the World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil Rights, see foralltheworldtohear.org. There you will read about CADVC's outreach project with the Baltimore senior citizen community. We have also posted a schedule of live theatre presentations, at which attendees will witness live, first-person accounts of the amazing stories we have collected from those active in the civil rights movement.
UMBC's Humanities Forum will also be presenting several lectures and panel discussions on the civil rights movement, including a discussion between Julian Bond and Freeman Hrabowski, among others. For more details see this link.
