A great read. Gordon Parks was best known for his works as a film maker, with such movies as the "Learning Tree" and "Shaft", he became a cult icon in the African American entertainment genre. This auto-biographical piece, written almost from his death bed, puts it in perspective the life and times of African Americans who were struggling to become successful in the earlier part of the 20th century.
Follow, Park's journey from impoverished youth, fashion photographer, photo journalist and columnist, author, film maker, music composer and lover of life. This auto biography is a great inspirational work, perfect for the underdog in all of us.

Interest; Adventure, cultural studies, arts & humanities, auto-biographies and inspirational.
