A Choice of Weapons, Honor and Dignity: The Visions of Gordon Parks and Jamel Shabazz
January 23 @ 5:30 pmFree
The exciting new exhibition at The M presents two towering artists who captured intimate and astonishing snapshots of the everyday lives of African-Americans in distinctly different timeframes. Pioneering photographer Gordon Parks documented the Jim Crow era through the civil rights movement, while Brooklyn artist Jamel Shabazz, who has followed in Parks’s footsteps, took similarly candid photos of public and private scenes from 1980s to the present day.
