Dr. Grier-Key discusses a range of topics related to Black History Month, including the importance of culturally sensitive contextualization ahead of the NAACP’s press conference tomorrow at the Riverhead Free Library in the wake of the Suffolk County Historical Society’s releasing a 1920s photograph of Klan members as their Picture Of the week amidst Black History Month, plus a discussion on Gordon Parks, a prolific pioneer photojournalist whose portrait series and photo work intimately covering the Civil Rights Movement is as incredible and ground-breaking as his career itself in the history of professional journalism in the USA, which will take place tomorrow at Parrish Art Museum, as well as another local celebration occurring Saturday in the form of an XR experience at Southampton African American Museum
