GORDON PARKS’ 1950S PHOTO ESSAY ON CIVIL RIGHTS-ERA AMERICA IS AS RELEVANT AS EVER

An exhibition of Parks’ rare color photographs, entitled “Gordon Parks: Segregation Story,” will go on view this fall at The High Museum of Art in Atlanta. The photos capture a particularly disturbing moment in American history, captured via the lives of an African American family, the Thorntons, living under Jim Crow segregation in 1950s Alabama. See all of the photos here.

Today I finished my first year of teaching. Never have I felt such an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. To teach is to touch the soul of another. In my year teaching in Detroit, I have been taught so much by so many. There is hope for this great city, and it lies in the hearts and minds of our youth.

There’s a joke in here somewhere…  

You become what you believe.

You become what you believe. 

My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

5 Famous People Whose Best Work Was Motivated By Revenge

#5. Judd Apatow’s Entire Film Career Is Revenge Against NBC
When Freaks and Geeks was canceled, Apatow did not take it well. His wife says he acted like he “just lost a family member.” And what do you do when someone murders your family? You spend the next decade carefully executing your revenge, yes. As soon as Apatow hit it big with The 40-Year-Old Virgin, he started working on turning the talent of his old show into movie stars, just to spite NBC. … In Apatow’s resentful mind, he pretended the show was still on and his movies were “the continuous adventures of those characters” — for him, Knocked Up is “just an episode of Seth’s character getting a girl pregnant.” Which, since Freaks and Geeks was set in 1980, would make the guy Rogen played there a very youthful 45-year-old.
