In his lifetime, the great Gordon Parks taught Americans how to see one another. Last night, the late photographer’s foundation followed in his footsteps by elevating four individuals fighting for social justice in their respective fields: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chelsea Clinton, Raf Simons, and Kehinde Wiley. The honored guests were joined by a buoyant crowd that included Swizz Beatz, Danny Glover, Kerby Jean-Raymond and Zoe Buckman.
