Reviews

"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.
"Stunning both visually and interpretively, this marvelous book is by turns chilling and inspiring, poignant and gritty. The images it chooses and juxtaposes will introduce young people to worlds of struggle too little recalled and remind us all of the stakes involved in images of race and freedom."-David Roediger, author of How Race Survived U.S. History: From Settlement and Slavery to the Obama Phenomenon -- David Roediger

"In 1955, the photograph of Emmett Till's mutilated body was for many African-Americans the visual equivalent of a knock-out punch. . . . 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 major social movement that changed the history and the fabric of American life, all for the better."--Robert Leiter, Jewish Exponent -- Robert Leiter * Jewish Exponent *
"[An] attractive and compellingly written new work."--Tracy E. K'Myer, The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society -- Tracy E. K'Myer * The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society *
Selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2010 in the Art & Architecture category * Choice *
Winner of the 2010 Outstanding Exhibition in a University Art Museum, given by the Association of Art Museum Curators -- Outstanding Exhibition in a University Art Museum * Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) *
