Educator Preview Visit of For All the World to See Exhibit

November 12, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Join us for a FREE educator visit to the special exhibit For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights on Monday, November 12, 4:00—5:30pm.

For All The World To See 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. The content of For All the World to See addresses a wide range of issues and includes a few images that are graphic in nature. Some works in the exhibit may be too sensitive for very young children, and therefore the exhibit is more appropriate for Grade 6 and above, though a visit could be adapted for Grades 4 and 5.

You will have the chance to explore the exhibit; learn about related educator resources, lessons and activities that are available; hear about the free public programming that goes along with the exhibit; and find out more about booking a school group visit. You can drop in at any time from 4:00 to 5:30pm; there will be a brief curator-led introduction to the exhibit and its resources at 4:15pm.

For more information about the exhibit, please check out the exhibit page here. You can also see the related public programs on our Events page.

If you are a teacher or educator and would like to attend this preview visit, please RSVP to Rene Rodgers at rrodgers@birthplaceofcountrymusic.org.

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.
