An Evening with Martin Berger: Birmingham to Ferguson, The Politics of Civil Rights Photography

Birmingham to Ferguson: The Politics of Civil Rights Photography

Martin Berger will analyze the creation and circulation of photographs of the black civil rights struggle in the 1960s. In his talk hew will explain why the famous photographs of civil rights look the way they do and consider the different

meanings that white and black audiences took from the images. Finally, Berger considers how present-day photographs of racial struggle are linked to the visual and historical legacies of the mid-twentieth-century civil rights movement.

The event is presented in colaboration with UVA's IDEA Fund and made possible through the generous support of the IDEA Fund and the Blue Moon Fund.
