2011 African Presence Art Exhibition Opening Reception features photos from March on Washington

A hush fell across the National Mall when Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke the words “I have a dream” from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. More than 200,000 civil rights supporters gathered for this defining moment during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Electricity was in the air, and LOOK magazine photographer Stanley Tretick was there to capture powerful images from King’s speech, the march, and of President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Johnson with the march organizers.

Now, a documentary-quality collection of these inspiring photos will be on view through March 31 in the Second Floor Gallery of NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library. The exhibition, And Freedom For All, is organized by NSU in collaboration with ArtVision and consists of nearly 50 historic photographs from the estate of award-winning photographer Stanley Tretick.

In addition to photos from the March on Washington, the And Freedom For All exhibit will feature some of Tretick’s best-known work as a presidential photographer, such as the iconic photo he took of John, Jr. under President Kennedy’s desk while his father worked.

And Freedom For All is part of the university’s Eighth Annual African Presence Art Exhibition and 2011 Black History Month celebration, which includes a month long calendar of compelling discussions, engaging performances, educational workshops and dynamic speakers. And Freedom For All is sponsored by NSU’s Office of University Relations.
