Life Magazine's First Photo Essay by Black Photographer

"Fresh from assignments at Vogue and Glamour in 1948, Gordon Parks appeared one morning at Life's New York headquarters, determined to show his portfolio to Wilson Hicks, the magazine's esteemed picture editor,"Maurice Berger wrote for the "Lens" blog Wednesday at the New York Times.

"Mr. Hicks was initially reluctant, but he warmed to Mr. Parks' work and the story he pitched about the gang warfare then plaguing Harlem.
