Kansas City Gems Week 4: Gordon Parks: The Renaissance Man

Kansas City GEMS last 1-2 hours depending on the topic and presenter

 

Kirk Sharp will cover the remarkable life story of Gordon Parks (1912-2006), an internationally-known photographer, filmmaker, musician, and writer.  As a photographer, Parks moved easily between fashion, portraiture, and gritty studies of African American life.  In 1969 he adapted his autobiographical novel “The Learning Tree” into a film, becoming Hollywood’s first major Black director.
