In celebration of the museum’s newest photography exhibition, Gordon Parks X Muhammad Ali The Image of a Champion, 1966|70, join us for a special opening performance, Gordon Parks: A Renaissance Dance, performed by Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey!

Inspired by Gordon Parks’ varied talents, KCFAA’s Chief Artistic Director Tyrone Aiken presents a new mixed media production highlighting Parks’ photographs of Muhammad Ali and performative excerpts from Parks’ 1990 ballet composition, Martin. Reflecting on black identity, faith, and the fight for human rights, acceptance, and equality during a pivotal time during United States’ history, KCFAA presents a powerful and immersive experience not to be missed.
