I grew up at a time when Life & Look magazines were middle-America’s eyes on the world. Saturday Evening Post was another outlet that used the photograph as prime communication & informed a nation hungry for a glance. We watched the latest fads & trends & news printed alter the world just beyond our reach. And we assumed we were part of it. My parents indulged my rabid curiosity. Besides subscribing to all the picture publications we were one of the first African American families to have a television. My sister & I sat on the floor surrounded by playmates & their parents watching the small black/white screen.
