    Gordon Parks: 100 Moments

    Gordon Parks was a multitalented artist known most for his skill as a photographer. To celebrate the centennial of his birth, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture as well as the International Center of Photography have mounted two different exhibitions featuring photographic work from his long career.

    100 Moments, the exhibition presented by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, focuses on Parks’ work documenting African Americans in Harlem and Washington, D.C. during the early 1940s.

    These photographs were taken when both cities were going through significant changes—arising from post-WW II urban migration, the expansion of the black press, concern for children’s education, and entrenched segregation and economic discrimination.

    The exhibit is open now, and runs through December 1, 2012.
