Gordon Parks



"The Learning Tree is the most important book that my father wrote because it was a stepping stone for him personally and professionally.  It allowed him to write about the experiences he lived growing up in Kansas in the 1920's and it led to his directorial debut as a filmmaker. It is a great choice for the Kansas Center for the Book at the State Library of Kansas for its very first one-book project. "

          -- David Parks  (Gordon Parks' son)
