Join us for a family and community day featuring the new exhibition, For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.

The central event of the family day will be a roundtable discussion consisting of senior members from the Knoxville community. They will be sharing their own experiences of the Civil Rights movement in Knoxville during the 1940s–1960s, and visitors are encouraged to come listen, learn, and share during the conversation.

In addition to the roundtable discussion there will be:

  • Tours of the exhibit focusing on the civil rights movement and how imagery impacts the way we feel and act
  • Family portrait craft and photo booth celebrating positive images
  • An “I Love Me” mirror and reflection wall
  • Mini community choir will perform and teach civil rights era song to the public
  • A Print station where you can make your own poster to promote change

The program is free and open to all.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
