February 9 Gordon Parks, born on November 30th, 1912, was the first African American on the staff of LIFE magazine. He had taught himself how to use a camera and used photography to cover subjects of race and poverty but also fashion and entertainment. Parks said, “I saw that the camera could be a weapon against poverty, against racism, against all sorts of social wrongs. I knew at that point I had to have a camera.”
