A Choice of Weapons, Honor and Dignity: The Visions of Gordon Parks and Jamel Shabazz Exhibition Opening

January 24 @ 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Free
This exhibition includes photographs that document expressions of dignity, honor, hope, and love in the African American community by two towering photographers. Featured works include Gordon Parks’s astonishing images from the Jim Crow-era through the civil rights movement, and photographs by Brooklyn artist Jamel Shabazz, who has followed in Parks’s footsteps from the 1980s to the present day. A Choice of Weapons, Honor and Dignity explores how Parks and Shabazz have both used photography to empower communities and lift up Black voices. The exhibition is curated by Robin Hickman-Winfield, CEO and Executive Producer of SoulTouch Productions and a great-niece of Gordon Parks. She first collaborated with the M in 1998 on the landmark traveling exhibition Half Past Autumn: The Life and Works of Gordon Parks, helping to bring the show to St. Paul.
