Withers, Courtesy Panopticon Gallery, Boston MAFor All the World to See, an exhibition organized by UMBC's Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and curated by UMBC Research Professor Maurice Berger, opens today, January 17, at the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago, where it will continue on display through May 15.

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.
