Identify where the artist from? Grew up? Time period?
Gordon Parks was born on November 30, 1912. He mostly focused on photography, but he was also interested in music and writing. He also spent some time directing films. He was even the first Black man to produce and direct a major film. This was a huge accomplishment because during the time he lived there was a lot of segregation making it hard for anyone of color to do anything. His films were about the struggle of black people. This really brought awareness to the unfair actions towards people of color.
