The Long March - Herblock & the Civil Rights Movement

Through Monday, January 28
Gaston County Public Library
Presented by Elements of Empowerment Inc.

The Long March is one of five exhibits that display the work of legendary Washington Post editorial cartoonist Herbert L. Block, famously known as “Herblock.” Produced by The Herb Block Foundation, the goal of these exhibitions is to present Herblock’s effort to preserve American’s rights and freedoms through his political cartoons. 

The Civil Rights Movement was one of Herblock’s chief concerns. He illustrated the history and dialogue of this turbulent era in American society. His cartoons show us who we were as Americans, as well as the lessons to be learned from the Civil Rights Movement. Looking at Herblock’s political cartoons over seven decades we realize he was one of those people that fought long and hard to make us a better people. Herblock’s cartoons continue to resonate and will speak to us about these crucial events in our history for many generations to come.
