Here's an excerpt: "There are countless exhibitions, books, films, plays, and dances, like Alvin Ailey’s seminal Revelations, that rely on image to capture the civil rights movement in the United States, especially the bloody struggles of the late fifties, sixties and seventies. The particular intelligence of this exhibition is its focus on the relationship between the image and the struggle, not only at the micro-level of its evocative emotional power, but in the broader context of the media explosion of the mid-twentieth century. To this end, 'this exhibition of 230 objects and clips from television and film examines the extent to which the rise of the modern civil rights movement paralleled the birth of television and the popularity of picture magazines and other forms of visual mass media' . . . .”
