As part of our ongoing programming about MMofA’s special exhibition Gordon Parks: Segregation Story in Mobile, 1956, our friends from PowerLines Poetry will perform original work inspired by the exhibition.


About GORDON PARKS: Segregation Story in Mobile, 1956

This exhibition of photographs documents the everyday activities and rituals of one extended black family, the Thorntons, in Mobile and Shady Grove, Alabama, during segregation. The images were originally published in a 1956 photo essay by Parks, an assignment from Life magazine after the Montgomery bus boycotts, but have come to be known around the world for helping to inspire the Civil Rights movement. Read more>>
