It's what students and staff at FAMU are calling one of the finest gifts to the city. The 'Crossroads' exhibit with the works of Gordon Parks. The exhibit showing off 45 pieces of his work was unveiled at FAMU.

Malia Lewis, great niece of Gordon Parks, said, "The biggest thing to me was always that he was so humble about it. He had this larger than life persona that other people saw, but with us he was cool Uncle Gordon. You know, making fish and telling jokes."
Dr. James Hawkins, Dean of the School of Journalism and Graphic Communication, shared, "This exhibit will bring to our community the works of a great American who lived a tough life, but managed to find a way to share American History"

The Gordon Parks Crossroads exhibit will be on display for only 45 days. Students and staff at FAMU urge everyone in the community to see it in the Meek-Eaton Black Archives.
