Prom Night in Mississippi

In 1997, Academy Award-Winning Actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for Charleston High School’s senior prom (in Mississippi) under one condition. His conditions was that the prom had to be racially integrated. Unfortunately, his offer was ignored. But, in 2008, Freeman offered again, and this time the school board accepted and history was made.

The concept behind this letterpress art piece was to conceptually connect the idea of two parties becoming intertwined. The images were hand carved and intentionally left rough - to imply the process of change transpiring in the prom story.
