Praise for A Choice of Weapons
"A perceptive narrative of one man's struggle to realize the values (defined as democratic and especially American) he has been taught to respect." --New York Times Book Review
Gordon Parks (1912-2006)--the groundbreaking photographer, writer, composer, activist, and filmmaker--was only sixteen in 1928 when he moved from Kansas to St. Paul, Minnesota, after his mother's death. There, homeless and hungry, he began his fight to survive, to educate himself, and to fulfill his potential dream.
Wing Young Huie is an acclaimed photographer and the author of several books including Frogtown and Looking for Asian America.
