Product description

Review

A glimpse into fifties segregated America by one of the most celebrated African-American photographers, Gordon Parks's Back to Fort Scott (Steidl) documents the return to his hometown of Fort Scott, Kansas, and to other Midwestern cities in his journey to create portraits of each of his classmates.--Suzanne Shaheen "vogue.com " But as a new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston reveals, that same year, photojournalist Gordon Parks -- then the only black staff photographer at Life -- proposed a story to his editors that might have actually done so had it ever been published. Parks wanted to represent ordinary African Americans within the magazine's pages through a cover story about school segregation. The 38-year-old journalist would travel to his hometown of Fort Scott, Kansas, to find and photograph his 11 former classmates from the all-black school he once attended.--Laura C Mallonee "Hyperallergic " In 1950, Gordon Parks traveled to his hometown in Kansas to capture the impact of school segregation in America. The photo essay never ran, but his images and the story behind them have resurfaced after 65 years in obscurity.--Eliza Berman "Life, Time "
