Gordon Parks: Photographs at His Centennial

Museum of the African Diaspora (685 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA) Map it $10

Acclaimed photographer, writer, filmmaker, and composer Gordon Parks (1912-2006) fought poverty and racism with his camera. As Life magazine’s first African American staff photographer, Parks developed into one of America’s finest photojournalists. Parks' photo-essays for the magazine covered subjects ranging from Paris fashion shows, to the Black Panthers, to slum-dwellers in Rio de Janeiro. A documentarian and resolute advocate for the civil rights movement, Parks' photographs bore witness to the collective efforts of Black public figures, politicians, and ordinary Americans for civil rights.

This exhibition, mounted in honor of Parks' 100th birthday, includes eight of his most significant photographs, which were donated to MoAD by the photographer himself.
