You can't lead the play if you're following anothers direction.


1956- Gordon Parks documented the everyday lives of an extended black family living in rural Alabama under Jim Crow segregation for Life magazine’s photo-essay “The Restraints: Open and Hidden.” (via)

there’s still a masonic lodge building in downtown birmingham that was used as a meeting place a lot during these times that still says “colored masonic lodge” on the building since it was for black people only.

Just awesome :)
