"Even 'unforgettable' images such as those contained in this project can be forgotten if they are not part of a public and highly visible record. With this tremendously important book, Maurice Berger has ensured that these powerful, affirming, and harrowing images will remain central to the story of this country's furious and joyful struggle for civil rights."-Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University-- Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
"In 1955, the photograph of Emmett Till's mutilated body was for

. . . 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."-Boston Globe * Boston Globe *
"For All the World to See. . . reminds us though text and
images just how powerfully photography affected the course of a

American life, all for the better."--Robert Leiter, Jewish
