Second Saturday Story Time

The Shasta Historical Society hosts a history themed Story time on Facebook the second Saturday of each month. About 1/2 hour in length, it is appropriate for children ten and under. Older children are of course welcome, too! This month’s selection: Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America by Carole Boston Weatherford. This month’s reader: Kelsey Farquhar. Listen to learn about Gordon Parks, who is most famous for being the first black director in  Hollywood. But before he made movies and wrote books, he was a poor African American looking for work. When he bought a camera, his life changed forever. This is the story of how, with a single photograph, a self-taught artist got America to take notice.
