A Choice of Weapons
Gordon Parks (1912-2006), a photographer for Life magazine, writer, composer, artist and filmmaker, was only 16 in 1928 when he moved from Kansas to St. Paul, Minnesota, after his mother’s death. This compelling autobiography, set in the Twin Cities and first published in 1966, tells how he managed to escape the poverty and bigotry around him,and launch his distinguished career, by choosing the weapons given him by “a mother who placed love, dignity and hard work over hatred.”
