For All The World To See is a nationally touring exhibition from NEH on the Road that examines the role that visual culture played in shaping and transforming the struggle for racial equality in America from the late 1940’s to the mid 1970’s.Visitors to this immersive exhibition will explore dozens of compelling and persuasive visual images, including photographs from influential magazines, such as Life, Jet, and Ebony; CBS news footage; and TV clips from The Ed Sullivan Show. Also included are civil rights-era objects that exemplify the range of negative and positive imagery—from Aunt Jemima syrup dispensers and 1930s produce advertisements to Jackie Robinson baseball ephemera and 1960s children’s toys with African American portraiture. For All the World To See is not a history of the civil rights movement, but rather an exploration of the vast number of potent images that influenced how Americans perceived race and the struggle for equality.
This week will be the last opportunity for patrons to visit this stunning exhibit. The closing ceremony will take at the Black Archives of Mid-America on Saturday, August 11th from 1p-3p and will feature a special performance by renowned poet and spoken word artist, Sheri "Purpose" Hall.
This event is free and open to the public.
