The Whole World's Watching was an extraordinary exhibition which examined the rich history of the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s through documentary photography. With a focus on Northern California where many of these activities were born, distinguished photographers illuminate the rise of the Black Panthers, the Free-Speech and Anti-war Movements, feminism, disability rights, environmental activism, the struggle for gay rights and the cultural milieu which formed and informed them. The exhibition presented 100 images taken during these turbulent times by noted photographers including Jeffrey Blankfort, Nacio Jan Brown, Cathy Cade, Bob Fitch, Robert Hsiang, Ken Light, Richard Misrach, Ronald J. Riesterer, Stephen Shames, Ted Streshinsky, Michelle Vignes and Douglas Wachter among others.
