Gordon Parks Dies at 93

Akron Beacon Journal

Detroit Free Press

I'm a big fan of his. I saw an exhibit of his photography a few years ago that was wonderful. I'll never forget looking at a photo of a "colored entrance" when a black woman and her son came up to view it. I heard her explain to him what the sign meant. I felt as I have before, ashamed to have the same color skin as those who were responsible for the suffering of so many.

Thank you Gordon for the eyes that you opened.

The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed.
~Gordon Parks
