Review: "For All the World to See" (Review)
Author(s): K. A. Schwain
Publication: Choice
Date: 9/1/2010
Abstract: The American Library Association reviews the companion book for For All the World to See and names it a Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2010, in the category of Art and Architecture: "In this compelling, insightful book, cultural historian and art critic Berger (Univ. of Maryland, Baltimore County) underscores the myriad ways that images in advertising, film, photojournalism, and television fashioned and fortified the modern civil rights movement from the early 1950s to the mid 1970s. Echoing cultural critic bell hooks's assertion that the struggle for black liberation was a battle for both visual and political representation, Berger demonstrates how civil rights leaders fought to replace century-old caricatures of doting mammies, entertaining dandies, and exotic primitives with positive portrayals of modern, self-assured, and successful citizens. Analyzing representations of race in the news and entertainment industries, Berger shows how black leaders orchestrated media events to ro

The Find: Images from the Civil Rights Movement (Review)
Publication: Boston Globe
Date: 4/11/2010
Abstract: A mini-review of FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE in the BOSTON GLOBE'S "The Find" column in its Sunday book review: "In 1955, the photograph of Emmett Till’s mutilated body was for many African-Americans the visual equivalent of a knock-out punch. No mainstream newspaper or magazine published the photo, but the black press did. That single image played a powerful role in building the civil rights movement, we learn in Maurice Berger’s “For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights’’ (Yale University), being published April 20 to coincide with the opening of a touring exhibit co-presented by the Smithsonian. The book also looks beyond news headlines, analyzing Walt Disney’s “Song of the South,’’ Aunt Jemima, and the 1967 TV show “Julia,’’ in which racism was mainly a thing of the past . . . "

But what a powerful image it is: a shot of a distraught Mamie Till Bradley as she views the casket of her fourteen-year old son, Emmett Till, murdered by white supremacists in Mississippi in August 1955. The photograph brings to life the book’s abiding issue: the crucial role that visual culture played in altering prevailing ideas about race, racism, and segregation in the period of the modern civil rights movement . . .

Strange Fruit: Visual Culture at ICP (Review)
Author(s): Laila Pedro
Publication: Idiom Magazine
Date: 6/30/2010
Abstract: IDIOM magazine writes: "There are countless exhibitions, books, films, plays, and dances, like Alvin Ailey’s seminal Revelations, that rely on image to capture the civil rights movement in the United States, especially the bloody struggles of the late fifties, sixties and seventies. The particular intelligence of this exhibition is its focus on the relationship between the image and the struggle, not only at the micro-level of its evocative emotional power, but in the broader context of the media explosion of the mid-twentieth century. To this end, 'this exhibition of 230 objects and clips from television and film examines the extent to which the rise of the modern civil rights movement paralleled the birth of television and the popularity of picture magazines and other forms of visual mass media' . . . .”

Goings On About Town: For All the World to See (Review)
Author(s): Vince Aletti
Publication: The New Yorker
Date: 8/2/2011
Abstract: Read Vince Aletti's excellent short-form review of For All the World to See in the print edition of The New Yorker: INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY 1133 Sixth Ave., at 43rd St. (212-857-0000)—“For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.” Taking his cue from Gordon Parks, the curator Maurice Berger has organized a shrewd, sophisticated show that posits the camera—and the proliferation of black images in pop culture—as a crucial weapon in shaping public opinion and motivating change in America before and during the civil-rights era.
