Gordon Parks: Segregation Story celebrated the work of one of the twentieth century’s most socially engaged artists. The show unveiled a broad selection of images from Parks’s powerful 1956 photo essay on a multigenerational African American family persevering in the segregated South. This exhibition is an excellent springboard for learning about human and civil rights.
