4 x 5 original color transparency photo by Gordon parks from "THE SUPER COPS" (1974), starring DAVID SELBY and RON LEIBMAN. Even though the photo shown may make the slide appear with marks or out of focus, it is in magnificent condition, with no marks at all and sharp as a whistle.
Gordon Parks, one of the most celebrated African American artists of his time, is the subject of this exhibition of groundbreaking photographs of Fort Scott, Kansasfocusing on the realities of life under segregation during the 1940s, but also relating to Parkss own fascinating life story. In 1948, Gordon Parks (19122006) became the first African American photographer to be hired full time by LIFE magazine.
One of the rare African American photojournalists in the field, Parks was frequently given magazine assignments involving social issues that his white colleagues were not asked to cover. Fort Scott was the town that he had left more than 20 years earlier, when after his mother died, he found himselfa teenager and the youngest of 15 childrensuddenly having to make his own way in the world. He used this assignment to revisit early memories of his birthplace, many involving serious racial discrimination, and to reconnect with childhood friends, all of whom had attended the same all-black grade school as Parks.One of the most visually rich and captivating of all his projects, Parkss photographs, now owned by The Gordon Parks Foundation, were slated to appear in April 1951, but the photo essay was never published. This exhibition represents a rarely seen view of everyday lives of African American citizens, years before the Civil Rights movement began in earnest. The Super Cops is a 1974 film starring Ron Leibman and David Selby, directed by Gordon Parks. The film is based on the book The Super Cops: The True Story Of The Cops Called Batman and Robin by L. The film was released the year after the successful cop movie Serpico (also based on a true story). Two rookie policemen, Dave Greenberg and Rob Hantz, straight out of the NYPD police academy, want to do more than traffic control. They have their own ideas about fighting crime against drug dealers, criminals and corrupt cops in Brooklyn. The Archie Comics superhero imprint Red Circle Comics published one issue of a Super Cops comic book (with stories written by Marv Channing) in July 1974. On January 19, 2011, film director Edgar Wright requested a DVD release of The Super Cops from the Warner Archive on Twitter, and Warner responded by announcing a remastered manufactured on-demand edition of The Super Cops. The film was released on DVD via the Warner Archive Collection on September 13, 2011. Gordon Parks (November 30, 1912 March 7, 2006) was an American photographer, musician, writer and film director.
He is best remembered for his photographic essays for Life magazine and as the director of the 1971 film Shaft. 3 As subject for others. 6.2 Compilations of poetry and photography. 9.1 Primary source materials. 9.2 Additional article length works.9.3 Books about Parks. 9.4 Documentaries on or including Parks. Parks was born in Fort Scott, Kansas, the son of Sarah (née Ross) and Jackson Parks.
 He was the last child born to them. His father was a farmer who grew corn, beets, turnips, potatoes, collard greens, and tomatoes. They also had a few ducks, chickens, and hogs.He attended a segregated elementary school. The town was too small to afford a separate high school that would facilitate segregation of the secondary school, but blacks were not allowed to play sports or attend school social activities,  and they were discouraged from developing any aspirations for higher education. When Parks was eleven years old, three white boys threw him into the Marmaton River, knowing he couldn't swim. He had the presence of mind to duck underwater so they wouldn't see him make it to land. His mother died when he was fourteen. He spent his last night at the family home sleeping beside his mother's coffin, seeking not only solace, but a way to face his own fear of death.  Soon after, he was sent to live with relatives. That situation ended with Parks being turned out onto the street to fend for himself.
In 1929, he briefly worked in a gentlemen's club, the Minnesota Club. There he not only observed the trappings of success, but was able to read many books from the club library.
 When the Wall Street Crash of 1929 brought an end to the club, he jumped a train to Chicago,  where he managed to land a job in a flophouse.  The photography clerks who developed Parks' first roll of film, applauded his work and prompted him to seek a fashion assignment at a women's clothing store in St. Paul, Minnesota, that was owned by Frank Murphy.Those photographs caught the eye of Marva Louis, the elegant wife of heavyweight boxing champion Joe Louis. She encouraged Parks to move to Chicago in 1940,  where he began a portrait business and specialized in photographs of society women. Over the next few years, Parks moved from job to job, developing a freelance portrait and fashion photographer sideline. He began to chronicle the city's South Side black ghetto and, in 1941, an exhibition of those photographs won Parks a photography fellowship with the Farm Security Administration (FSA). A well-known photograph by Gordon Parks. Working as a trainee under Roy Stryker, Parks created one of his best-known photographs, American Gothic, Washington, D.  named after the iconic Grant Wood painting, American Gothic. The photograph shows a black woman, Ella Watson, who worked on the cleaning crew of the FSA building, standing stiffly in front of an American flag hanging on the wall, a broom in one hand and a mop in the background. Parks had been inspired to create the image after encountering racism repeatedly in restaurants and shops in the segregated capital city. A later photograph in the FSA series by Parks shows Ella Watson and her family. Upon viewing the photograph, Stryker said that it was an indictment of America, and that it could get all of his photographers fired.  He urged Parks to keep working with Watson, however, which led to a series of photographs of her daily life. Parks said later that his first image was overdone and not subtle; other commentators have argued that it drew strength from its polemical nature and its duality of victim and survivor, and so has affected far more people than his subsequent pictures of Mrs. After the FSA disbanded, Parks remained in Washington, D. As a correspondent with the Office of War Information.  Finally, disgusted with the prejudice he encountered, however, he resigned in 1944. Moving to Harlem, Parks became a freelance fashion photographer for Vogue. He later followed Stryker to the Standard Oil Photography Project in New Jersey, which assigned photographers to take pictures of small towns and industrial centers. The most striking work by Parks during that period included, Dinner Time at Mr. Hercules Brown's Home, Somerville, Maine (1944); Grease Plant Worker, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (1946); Car Loaded with Furniture on Highway (1945); and Ferry Commuters, Staten Island, N. Parks renewed his search for photography jobs in the fashion world. Despite racist attitudes of the day, the Vogue editor, Alexander Liberman, hired him to shoot a collection of evening gowns. Parks photographed fashion for Vogue for the next few years and he developed the distinctive style of photographing his models in motion rather than poised. During this time, he published his first two books, Flash Photography (1947) and Camera Portraits: Techniques and Principles of Documentary Portraiture (1948). A 1948 photographic essay on a young Harlem gang leader won Parks a staff job as a photographer and writer with Life magazine. For 20 years, Parks produced photographs on subjects including fashion, sports, Broadway, poverty, and racial segregation, as well as portraits of Malcolm X, Stokely Carmichael, Muhammad Ali, and Barbra Streisand. He became one of the most provocative and celebrated photojournalists in the United States. An exhibition of photographs from a 1950 project Parks completed for Life magazine is scheduled for 2015 at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The project included his commentary, but the work never was published by the magazine.
The exhibition of 42 of those photographs is entitled "Gordon Parks: Back to Fort Scott" and the opening date of the exhibit is January 17, 2015. In the 1950s, Parks worked as a consultant on various Hollywood productions. He later directed a series of documentaries on black ghetto life that were commissioned by National Educational Television. With his film adaptation of his autobiographical novel, The Learning Tree in 1969, Parks became Hollywood's first major black director. It was filmed in his home town of Fort Scott, Kansas.
 Parks also wrote the screenplay and composed the musical score for the film, with assistance from his friend, the composer Henry Brant. Shaft, a 1971 detective film directed by Parks and starring Richard Roundtree as John Shaft, became a major hit that spawned a series of films that would be labeled as, blaxploitation. Parks' feel for settings was confirmed by Shaft, with its portrayal of the super-cool leather-clad, black private detective hired to find the kidnapped daughter of a Harlem racketeer. Parks also directed the 1972 sequel, Shaft's Big Score, in which the protagonist finds himself caught in the middle of rival gangs of racketeers.Parks's other directorial credits include The Super Cops (1974) and Leadbelly (1976), a biopic of the blues musician Huddie Ledbetter. In the 1980s, he made several films for television and composed the music and a libretto for Martin, a ballet tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. Which premiered in Washington, D. It was screened on national television on King's birthday in 1990. In 2000, as an homage, he had a cameo appearance in the Shaft sequel that starred Samuel L. Jackson in the title role as the namesake and nephew of the original John Shaft. In the cameo scene, Parks was sitting playing chess when Jackson greeted him as, Mr. His first job was as a piano player in a brothel when he was a teenager.  Parks also performed as a jazz pianist. His song "No Love", composed in another brothel, was performed during a national radio broadcast by Larry Funk and his orchestra in the early 1930s.
Parks composed Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (1953) at the encouragement of black American conductor, Dean Dixon, and his wife Vivian, a pianist,  and with the help of the composer Henry Brant.  He completed Tree Symphony in 1967.
In 1989, he composed and directed Martin, a ballet dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr. The civil rights leader who had been assassinated.
Beginning in the 1960s, Parks branched out into literature, writing The Learning Tree (1963). He authored several books of poetry, which he illustrated with his own photographs, and he wrote three volumes of memoirs. In 1981, Parks turned to fiction with Shannon, a novel about Irish immigrants fighting their way up the social ladder in turbulent early 20th-century New York. Parks' writing accomplishments include novels, poetry, autobiography, and non-fiction that includes photographic instructional manuals and filmmaking books. During this period, Parks also wrote the poem entitled, "The Funeral".
Gordon Parks was the subject of film and print profiles produced by others, notably, Half Past Autumn in 2000. A gallery exhibition of his photography-related, abstract oil paintings was held in 1981.
Parks was married and divorced three times. He married Sally Alvis in Minneapolis during 1933  and they divorced in 1961. He married Elizabeth Campbell in 1962 and they divorced in 1973.Parks first met Genevieve Young in 1962 when he began writing The Learning Tree.  At that time, his publisher assigned her to be his editor. They became romantically involved at a time when they both were divorcing previous spouses, and married in 1973. Candace Bushnell claims to have dated Parks in 1976, when she was 18 and he was 58 (sic).  For many years, Parks was romantically involved with Gloria Vanderbilt, the railroad heiress and designer.
 Their relationship evolved into a deep friendship that endured throughout his lifetime. Parks fathered four children: Gordon, Jr.David, Leslie, and Toni (Parks-Parsons). His oldest son Gordon Parks, Jr. Whose talents resembled his father's, was killed in a plane crash in 1979 in Kenya, where he had gone to direct a film.  Parks has five grandchildren: Alain, Gordon III, Sarah, Campbell, and Satchel. Malcolm X honored Parks when he asked him to be the godfather of his daughter, Qubilah Shabazz.
Gordon Parks received more than 20 honorary doctorates in his lifetime. He died of cancer at the age of 93 while living in Manhattan, New York City, and is buried in his hometown of Fort Scott, Kansas. Parks is remembered for photography, film making, music composition, and writing. He also is known for his activism and campaigning for civil rights. He was the first African American to work at Life magazine and the first to write, direct, and score a Hollywood film.He was profiled in the 1967 documentary The Weapons of Gordon Parks,  by American filmmaker Warren Forma. Parks was a co-founder of Essence magazine. He was one of the early contributors to the style of movies that became known as the blaxploitation genre, in which negative stereotypes of black males being involved with drugs, violence and women, were exploited for commercially-successful films featuring black actors. Parks said that freedom was the theme of all of his work. He described it as, Not allowing anyone to set boundaries, cutting loose the imagination, and then making the new horizons. Parks' son, Gordon Parks, Jr. (19341979) also directed films, including Super Fly, Three the Hard Way, and Aaron Loves Angela. His career was cut short when he died in a plane crash in Africa. In 1941, Parks was awarded a fellowship for photography from the Rosenwald Fund. The fellowship allowed him to work with the Farm Security Administration. In 1961, Parks was named "Magazine Photographer of the Year" by the American Society of Magazine Photos. In 1972, the NAACP awarded Parks the Spingarn Medal. In 1984, Parks received an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree from Thiel College, a private, liberal arts college in Greenville, Pennsylvania. In 1989, the United States Library of Congress deemed The Learning Tree "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" due to its being the first major studio feature film directed by an African American and the film was preserved in the United States National Film Registry. In 2000, Parks was awarded The Congress Of Racial Equality Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2000, the Library of Congress deemed Shaft to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", selecting it for NFR preservation as well. In 2003 he was awarded The Royal Photographic Society's Special 150th Anniversary Medal and Honorary Fellowship (HonFRPS) in recognition of a sustained, significant contribution to the art of photography. In 1995, Parks announced that he would donate his papers and entire artistic collection to the Library of Congress and one year later, "The Gordon Parks Collection" was curated. In 1997, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D. Mounted a career retrospective on Parks, Half Past Autumn: The Art of Gordon Parks.
In 1999, Gordon Parks Elementary School, a nonprofit, K-5 grade public charter school in Kansas City, Missouri, was established to educate the urban-core inhabitants . In 2004, The Art Institute of Boston conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters upon Parks.

(1972) obliged photographer-turned-film director Gordon Parks to cut short his honeymoon with third wife Genevieve Young to rush right into his next project, The Super Cops (1974). The New York setting was a more custom fit for Parks than the movie's subject matter: the real life story of two white NYPD rookies (and later plain clothes detectives) whose unorthodox methods of keeping the peace and running down drug peddlers in Brooklyn's crime-plagued Bedford-Stuyvesant section (660 arrests in four years and a 97% conviction rate) had earned them the nicknames Batman and Robin by 1970.
A former writer and script consultant for the 20th Century Fox/ABC series Batman. Derided by Time magazine as "a loud and clumsy film" and by The New York Times as "rather silly, " The Super Cops has nonetheless endured as an artifact of seminal 70s cinema.Part of this pedigree is due to the connection with Parks, although the film remains the least-discussed or critically-heralded of his five features. Another reason for its currency with moviegoers is the cross pollination casting. Supporting leads Ron Leibman and David Selby are Dan Frazer (from John Avildsen's The Stoolie  and the Kojak TV series), Shelia Frazier from Super Fly , directed by Gordon Parks, Jr. , Al Fann (from Cotton Comes to Harlem, 1970), stage actor Pat Corley (in his feature film debut) and Hollywood veteran Pat Hingle, as a Brooklyn squad commander. Greenberg and Hantz also snagged cameos as corrupt precinct cops.
As Dave Greenberg, "Batman" of The Super Cops, Ron Leibman was varying only slightly the brand of manic performance he had brought to supporting roles in Carl Reiner's Where's Poppa? (1970), Peter Yates' The Hot Rock (1972) and George Roy Hill's Slaughterhouse-Five (1972); but "Robin" was a shot at mainstream stardom for David Selby, formerly the benighted werewolf Quentin Collins of the supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows. If The Super Cops seems at first glance to be Gordon Parks' least substantial film, it is worth remembering that the groundbreaking Shaft was, for all its historic importance, far from cinema verité; for that film's big finish, star Richard Roundtree even swung through a window on a rope, à la the Caped Crusader, to rescue a gangster's kidnapped daughter. Its focus squarely on velocity and wit rather than suspense or violence, The Super Cops helped to split the crime genre down the middle, dividing the territory between lone wolf cop films such as Don Siegel's Dirty Harry (1971) and Phil Karlson's Walking Tall (1973) and buddy cop adventures on the order of Richard Rush's Freebie and the Bean (1974), Peter Hyams' Busting (1974) and the ABC-TV series Starsky and Hutch.
Location shooting by cinematographer Richard Kratina (who had worked the camera on the set of John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy, 1969) also puts The Super Cops in the gritty company of such revered pre-economic recovery New York City films as Barry Shear's Across 110th Street (1972) and Milton Katselas' Report to the Commissioner (1975). If in its day The Super Cops was a lighthearted distraction from Gotham's native financial crises and boiling racial tensions, today it stands as a bittersweet reminder of a city that no longer exists...

Passing mention of 70+ African American artists (only 14 women), most in the essay by Lowery Stokes Sims (Director, Studio Museum in Harlem) Collecting the Art of African Americans at the Studio Museum in Harlem: Positioning the'New' from the Perspective of the Past. " The African artists are primarily clustered in the text by Pamela McClusky (Curator of African and Oceanic Art, Seattle Art Museum) "The Unconscious Museum: Collecting Contemporary African Art without Knowing It. 8vo 9.2 x 6.1 in. APPIAH, KWAME ANTHONY and HENRY LOUIS GATES, Jr. Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience. Oxford University Press, 1999; 2005. No new information or in-depth discussion of the visual arts. Names of visual artists included in the accounts of each period of black history are often lumped into a one sentence list; very few have additional biographical entries.
As of 2011, far more substantial information on most of the artists is available from Wikipedia than is included in this Encyclopedia. Includes mention of: James Presley Ball, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David A.Bannister, Richmond Barthé, Cornelius Battey, Romare Bearden, Dawoud Bey, Everald Brown, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Roland Charles, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Albert V.

The entry on African Women Artists includes an odd and out-of-date collection of names: Elizabeth Olowu, Agnes Nyanhongo, Alice Sani, Inji Efflatoun, Grace Chigumira, Theresa Musoke, Palma Sinatoa, Elsa Jacob, and Terhas Iyasu. Hopefully future editions will follow the path of the substantially expanded edition of 2005 and will alter the overall impression that black visual artists are not worth the time and attention of the editors.Note: Now out-of-print and available only through exorbitant subscription to the Oxford African American Studies Center (OAASC) a single database incorporating multiple Oxford encyclopedias, ongoing addiitions will apparently be unavailable to individuals or to most small libraries in the U. 10.9 x 8.6 in.

Gordon Parks, Betye Saar, Lorna Simpson, Henry Ossawa Tanner, James Vanderzee, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems.This book is mentioned here because it is popular enough to have been reprinted and is credited as considering America's visual culture as an arena in which conflicting notions of class, gender, race, and regional allegiance are fought.

BONE, ROBERT and RICHARD COURAGE. New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press, 2011. Appendix A lists 35 artists (26 of whom were employed by the Federal Art Project), notes, bibliog. The book argues that a Chicago cultural Renaissance (equivalent to the Harlem Renaissance of the 20s and early 30s) occurred from 1935-50 when it picked up the torch from Harlem.
This proposition, first advanced by Richard Bone, is laid out here in greater detail in a book he had been working on for over a decade and which was finished by his collaborator/colleague Richard Courage. Unfortunately, visual art was not a primary concern for Bone or for Courage, so as one might expect the visual art information here is largely a reworking of previously published material on the few artists who are discussed.
No new information, for example, on Horace Cayton's support of visual artists at the Park Community Center. Includes: Margaret Burroughs, Eldzier Cortor, Archibald Motley, Jr. Gordon Parks, Marion Perkins, Charles Sebree, Charles White; with bare passing mention of Elizabeth Catlett, William Dawson, William McKnight Farrow, Bernard Goss, and a few others.

Encyclopedia of the African Diaspora: Origins, Experiences and Culture. Marked by a more than usual editorail indifference to the visual arts, entries of erratic quality and less than desirable levels of research or scholarship. Deborah Willis is alotted a bare handful of pages to cover the entirety of African American photography.
The essay on African Diaspora Art was allotted 17 pages to cover a period of 35,000 years and makes a courageous attempt to do so. It is not supported by any entries on individual artists, and many of the artists mentioned are not in the index. The entry is also plagued with inexcusable misspellings of numerous artists' names.
The essay on Diaspora photography is also beset by the requirement of inappropriate brevity; the author desperately spends most of the allotted space listing the names of a fairly subjective selection of photographers, some with birth dates, others not. Clyde Taylor packs his 2 1/2 page space allotment to cover Diaspora Film with as many names as possible and, understandably, still can find no room for the Black Audio Film Collective or other such experimental filmmakers, Other essays are depressingly vacuous - the essay on the Black Arts Movement, allotted 2 pages, spends only 31 lines on vague remarks about the movement which the reader is led to think is attributable to events that took place in the Nile Valley thousands of years before. What can you say about a book that devotes more space to rap and hip-hop than to Barbados. Not a book worth consulting? 4to 10.3 x 7.3 in.

Discusses 67 individuals and over 135 films. Although it includes a chapter on "Feminist art and Black art, " this by no means summarizes the level of inclusion of black artists at every point throughout the text. There are many glaring omissions John Biggers, Mildred Howard, Lois Mailou Jones, Martin Puryear, Bob Thompson, etc.
And some odd summary comments (for example, Norman Lewis's work is described as "improvisatory environments"), but it's hard to quibble with the first survey of American art to give more than token acknowledgement to the work of African American artists. Over fifty artists and 17 illustrations are included: Emma Amos, Benny Andrews, Amiri Baraka, Jean-Michel Basquiat illus. , Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Michael Ray Charles illus. , Barbara Chase-Riboud, Robert Colescott illus. , Aaron Douglas, Emory Douglas, Melvin Edwards illus., Sam Gilliam, Coco Fusco illus. , Palmer Hayden, Lonnie Holley, Cliff Joseph, Malvin Gray Johnson, Sargent Johnson illus.
