Celebrate the life of Gordon Parks by viewing iconic images in our photographic art installation featuring some of his most beloved works, such as American Gothic, Washington D.C. 1942. Additionally, join for an “In Conversation” with actor Lamman Rucker moderated by Local 10 News Anchor Neki Mohan, for a spirited discussion on Gordon Parks’ influence on film and the future of African-American cinema. Others on the panel include Dr. Dorothy Jenkins Field, Founder of The Black Archives and Michelle Madison, Producer and Host of Miami Now TV. Following the panel discussion at 3:30pm, boogie on down and pay homage to the soul/funk 70’s era music featured in the movie Shaft, directed by Gordon Parks. Stop by the Soul Jam style dance party … and don’t forget to pack your platforms and bellbottoms! Plus, with any $50 or more purchase made during the event, receive a commemorative Gordon Parks journal. While supplies last.
