In 1956 Life Magazine sent Gordon Parks to Alabama. His assignment was to show what segregation meant to the lives of black families. Parks risked his life to do his job. His photos bear witness to a troubled and troubling time in American history, where people lived in poverty and faced violence because they were "colored".
Gordon Parks: Invisible Man & Segregation Story is an exhibit of Gordon Park's photography now showing at the Weinstein Gallery (908 W. 46th St.) noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday until May 14th. Admission is free.
We plan to attend as a group on Sat. May 7 at 1pm. Let Janelle Hill know if you plan to join us (612-824-1891).
