Resisting time

—- “the sweet little white baby in the black nurse’s arms both of them bemused in heaven, a picture that should be blown up and hang in the street of Little Rock (AND IN THE AIRLINE TERMINAL OF ATLANTA GEORGIA) showing love under the sky and in the womb of our universe the Mother “—-
— Jack Kerouac’s original text from ‘The Americans’ by Robert Frank referring to the top photo of Frank from 1955 adapted by me for comparison with the (bottom) photo of the Atlanta Airport Terminal in Georgia, 1956 by Gordon Parks.
— 64-65 years have passed, these photos and the inhuman racial problem persist in time, resist in time.

— and Kerouac’s brilliant text also applies to Gordon Parks’ photo.

— everyone’s life matters, regardless of their skin color.
