Stokely Carmichael and Black Power Come to Life in Houston Through Gordon Parks’s Unforgettable Photographs
The photographic exhibit “Gordon Parks: Stokely Carmichael and Black Power” — on view at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston through this Monday, January 16 — is revelatory. Culled from 700 Parks photographs, the 53 images displayed capture the complexity, multifaceted character and altruistic spirit of Carmichael. Parks, a polymath who also excelled at writing, initially captured Carmichael in a Life magazine photo essay.
