In Brazil, the location of the 'Sea Dragon's' tomb was a mystery for a century. Until a University of Florida student stepped in. How'd he discover the tomb of the man known for ending slavery there?

First among equals, Gordon Parks, center, exults with fellow photographers following a 2002 portrait session in Harlem.

Gordon Parks

Because this year marks the 50th anniversary of his groundbreaking 1971 film, “Shaft”; because two fine shows of his pioneering photojournalism are currently on view at the Jack Shainman galleries in Chelsea; because a suite from his influential 1957 series, “The Atmosphere of Crime,” is a highlight of “In and Around Harlem,” now on view at the Museum of Modern Art; and because, somehow, despite the long shadow cast by a man widely considered the pre-eminent Black American photographer of the 20th century, he is too little known, the time seems right to revisit some elements of the remarkable life, style and undimmed relevance of Gordon Parks.

Nonverbal autism gets spotlight in new documentary | Autism Speaks

When I heard that they were turning the best-selling book ‘The Reason I Jump’ into a full-length documentary film I was SO excited. For those who haven’t read the book, yet it was written in 2007 written from the perspective of a nonspeaking 13-year-old boy in Naoki Higashida. The book was later translated to English which made it rise in popularity even further! I gave it a read after seeing Jon Stewart mention it when he was the host of The Daily Show.

The 82-minute documentary looks at the lives of 5 autistic people’s families from four different continents with an emphasis on nonverbal autism.

This film can be important for our community for so many reasons.
