Catherine Farquharson, a local Toronto photographer, has a show called Prom Night in Mississippi at The Lens Factory, 1040 Queen Street West in Toronto running until Feb. 28. Shot last year the documentary shows images of the first mixed-race prom held in Charleston High School which is the hometown of actor Morgan Freeman who paid for the dance. Her images are part of Paul Saltzman’s documentary Prom Night in Mississippi which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
Seems Ms Farquharson is on a role…a deservedly good roll too.
