In 2012, archivists at the Gordon Parks Foundation uncovered a vast collection of photographs on color slide film. The photographs were taken by Gordon Parks for Life in Alabama in 1956. “The project was to be a counterpoint to misinformation spread by segregationists who claimed that a racially separated, caste-based society was good for everyone.” Only 26 photographs were published in the magazine.
Now, 59 years later, a selection of these photographs are on display at Salon 94 in New York in the installation, “Segregation Story: Gordon Parks”.

Fairview Brown has been working to preserve the memory of the Fairview and ES Brown Rosenwald Schools in Georgia. Last year, the organization was able to clean up the sites, secure a $15,000 federal grant for Historic Preservation, host a successful fundraiser, and construct a canopy over the roof of Fairview school.
Hopefully, this organization can make more great strides toward historic preservation in 2016. We are excited to preview Rosenwald in Floyd County this year in partnership with the organization.
