The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture’s oral history project, For All the World to Hear: Stories of the Struggle for Civil Rights, is featured on the front page of this month’s Beacon.
The article explores the nature of the project and features interviews with its coordinator and CADVC Curator of Collections and Outreach, Sandra Abbott, and two speakers, Shirley and John Billy, whose harrowing story is detailed within the piece. The related gallery exhibition currently on display in the CADVC, For All The World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights, is also mentioned.

For All the World to Hear premiered with a preview of the event at UMBC on November 15, and will continue it’s tour, performing at museums, parks, libraries and college campuses through February. For All the World to Hear returns to UMBC Friday, February 15. Learn more about the project at foralltheworldtohear.org.
