The title "A Choice of Weapons" of the exhibition to honor the legendary Gordon Parks happens to perfectly describes my connection to the groundbreaking and award-winning photographer.

 

Mr. Parks who lived segregation became famous for using his camera as a weapon by portraying social injustice and racism in an unprecedented way. He became my inspiration when I realized that unconsciously I have been trying to do exactly the same, only with Natural Hair. By capturing the beauty of Natural Hairstyles I also hope to bring to light the social injustice of unequal rights regarding African strands.
