Medgar Evers Funeral, Life Magazine, June 28, 1963. From the NEH on the Road exhibition For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights. 2011.

The exhibit For All the World to See is now on display at the Cape Fear Museum.  It examines the role media and visual imagery played in the struggle for civil rights from the 1930s through the 1970s.

Joining Cleve Callison on this edition of CoastLine to discuss this history – juxtaposed against today -- with the immediacy of cell phone video and social media are three guests:  

Dr. Trevy McDonald is an Assistant Professor of Broadcast and Electronic Journalism at the University of North Carolina’s School of Media. 

Jan Davidson is a historian at the Cape Fear Museum.

Adrienne Garwood is the Exhibit Manager at the Cape Fear Museum.
