Iconic

Amazing image; truly iconic of his profession, his time, his pride.

Sergeant William Alexander Frazier

I was taken aback when my aunt sent me an online pictoral tribute to our president-elect, chronicling major events and people in black history. It included a photo of my grandfather taken by the acclaimed photographer Gordon Parks. My grandfather's picture is also displayed in the Library of Congress. I'm so happy!!

Officer Frazier

Love how the camera catches the sparkle of his lapel pin!
