The Role of The Visual Image In The Civil Rights Movement
"For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights” is the title of a traveling exhibit opening soon in Kansas City. The exhibit takes on a new approach: “It’s looking .. at how visual culture — TV, movies, mass merchandise, magazine covers — how visual images really provided a catalyst that moved the civil rights movement forward.” Details in this news story and in the book of the same name. The New York Times reviewed the exhibit when it was in the city. Previously, I produced a workshop for teachers on this topic.
