Voices in the Mirror (1st Edition)
by Gordon Parks
Publisher's Description
"On his own after his mother's death and homeless in a Minnesota winter, Gordon Parks struggled to stay in school, working at menial jobs and riding streetcars all night to escape the cold. Later, turning his anger at poverty and racism into a creative force, he went on to break one racial barrier after another, becoming the first black photographer at Vogue and Life and the black screenwriter and film director in Hollywood. . . Spanning the major events of five decades of American life, Parks takes the reader all the way from Minnesota, New York, and Washington, D. C., to the glamour of Paris and the slums of Rio de Janeiro and Harlem."--the publisher.
