Through a compelling assortment of photographs, television clips, art posters, and historic artifacts, a traveling exhibition at Arkansas State University will trace 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.
Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 28, Arkansas State University Museum will host "For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights." The public is invited to a reception celebrating the opening, 3‑5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Museum.
The nationally touring exhibition is made possible through NEH on the Road, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Adapted for the tour by Mid-America Arts Alliance (M-AAA), the exhibition continues through March 16 at A-State.
