April 11 – June 27
Adamson Gallery presents Segregation Story, an exhibit of photography by Gordon Parks. Parks is known as one of the twentieth century’s foremost documentarians of American life. Segregation Story features a selection of images from Parks’s powerful 1956 photographic series, which documented an extended African American family in segregated Alabama. Originally commissioned for a September 1956 issue of Life Magazine, this series is an intimate portrayal of one family’s perseverance through racial and economic subjugation in the Jim Crow South.
