Gordon Parks in Pittsburgh

In 1944, a young African American photographer was sent on assignment to Pittsburgh to capture workers at the Penola, Inc. grease production plant in the city's Strip District. Fifty of those photographs are on display at the Carnegie Museum of Art through August 7, 2022 in an exhibition entitled "Gordon Parks in Pittsburgh 1944/1946."
