An Attack Against One is an Attack Against All: From Civil Rights to Black Power

June 22, 2023



The civil rights movement and the Black Power movement are often presented as discrete and, at times, antithetical campaigns. While these separate approaches relied on different tactics and strategies, both were effective in securing fundamental human rights for Black people in America and have more in common than is generally recognized. Both addressed their audiences through powerful imagery and accessible visual language, thereby galvanizing the masses. 

Poster House is pleased to partner with the National Center for Civil and Human Rights for this panel discussion on the impact of these overlapping but divergent movements, with special attention paid to the role of visual communication for each radical strategy. 

This program is presented in-person and live-streamed for our virtual audience.
