The Whole Worlds Watching at the California African American Museum (CAAM) is an exhibit that follows the social unrest of the 1960s and 1970s through 90 documentary photographs revisiting some of the states most monumental issues.
Remember when the right to free speech was ignored? Or what about when workers rights were abused more often than they were respected? The Worlds Watching photos shine a spotlight on the coordinated chaos that developed and confess the problems of the past many of which are eerily similar to the brutal battles still taking place in the streets around the world today.
Feb. 11 is L.A.s last chance to come face to face with the CAAM exhibit that exposes the pitfalls of the Summer of Love and the horrors of war. So, step inside the injustice that ignited events like the TWA Strike and the army draft-card burning arranged in 1967 as Campus Circle gives you a snapshot of sunny Californias dark history.
The California African American Museum is located at 600 State Dr., in Exposition Park. Museum hours: Wed-Sat 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and the first Sunday of each month for "Target Sundays at CAAM." Price: Free. Parking: $6. For more information, call (213) 744-7432 or visit www.caamuseum.org.
