Gordon Parks 1912 - 2006
This was short piece I did for Current_tv. (Ch 103 NY Time Warner Cable)
"The Jackie Robinson of photography" is what one photographer called him, and just as Jackie Robinson meant a lot to the African American community, his entrance into the big leagues more importantly meant a great deal to all American culture at large. Our society is greater because of the diverse experience we are allowed to be part of. Gordon Parks brought us into a world we all can learn from and taught everyone that life is not limited.
It was a pleasure to produce this piece. It was delight to rub elbows with such a loving community of artists. Thank you Current_tv and thank you Gordon Parks.
