The best-known images of the civil rights struggle show black Americans as nonthreatening victims of white aggression.В Though this imagery helped garner the sympathy of liberal whites in the North for the plight of blacks, it did so by preserving a picture of whites as powerful and blacks as hapless victims.В Freedom Now!В showcases photographs rarely seen in the mainstream media, which depict the power wielded by black men, women and children in remaking U.S. society through their activism.В This exhibition has been curated by Martin Berger,В Professor,В History of Art and Visual Culture, UC Santa Cruz.


Year of Rebellion: The 1970 Isla Vista Riots, Photographs by Joe Melchione

October 19-December 13, 2013

OPENING RECEPTION:В  October 25, 5:30-7:30 pm

Year of Rebellion documents a tumultuous year in Isla Vista, filled with protests against the Vietnam War and UCSB policies. The violent and nonviolent confrontations of 1970 resulted in the burning of the Bank of America, one death, hundreds of arrests, as well as increased student involvement in UC governance. Joe Melchione, undergraduate photo-editor for the student paper at the time, documented these large-scale student movements with his first camera. Melchione’s suite of photographs will be accompanied by issues of the student newspaper, in which they first appeared, and ephemera produced by student organizations on campus. This exhibition has been curated by Chris Marino, Project Archivist for the Architecture and Design Collection at the AD&A Museum.
