Transcript

  1. Gordon Parks “Segregation Series”

  2. “Gordon Parks was one of the seminal figures of twentieth

    century photography. A humanitarian with a deep commitment to social justice, he left behind a body of work that documents many of the most important aspects of American culture from the early 1940s up until his death in 2006, with a focus on race relations, poverty, civil rights, and urban life. In addition, Parks was also a celebrated composer, author, and filmmaker who interacted with many of the most prominent people of his era — from politicians and artists to celebrities and athletes.”
  3. “I picked up a camera because it was my choice

    of weapon against what I hated most about the universe: racism, intolerance, poverty.”
