For those of you unable to get to the exhibition, reviewed by Laila Pedro in Idiom magazine as “one of the most careful and engaging curatorial efforts I’ve seen in a long time,” there are a host of other ways to experience the exhibit. There is an online version of the exhibition, which offers some of the images and written ideas behind the organization of the show, and an online film festival which matches seventeen films with short essays. All of the films are easily available on DVD, and the corresponding essays establish their connections to and influences on the civil rights movement.
exhibition will also be travelling to the National Museum of American History
