SPECIAL EXHIBIT @ Birthplace of Country Music Museum Tickets
Nov 10 2018 – Jan 7 2019 all-day
SPECIAL EXHIBIT @ Birthplace of Country Music Museum | Bristol | Virginia | United States

Coming in November! For All The World To See: Visual Culture and The Struggle for Civil Rights special exhibit at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.

Dates: November 10, 2018—January 7, 2019

For All The World To See: Visual Culture and The Struggle for Civil Rights examines the role that visual culture played in shaping and transforming the struggle for racial equality in America from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s. Through a compelling assortment of photographs, television clips, art posters, and historic artifacts, this exhibit traces how images and media disseminated to the American public transformed the modern civil rights movement and jolted Americans, both black and white, out of a state of denial or complacency.

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. As Ebony founder John H. Johnson put it, magazines and television “opened new windows in the mind and brought us face to face with the multicolored possibilities of man and woman.”

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It has been adapted and is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance. For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights was organized by The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in partnership with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution.

For All the World to See will be on display in the Special Exhibits Gallery from November 10, 2018 to January 7, 2019. A variety of public programs will be held throughout the exhibit, and the exhibit can serve as a wonderful educational resource for local and regional schools and educators.
