Getting ready for Prom

Inside this tiny building, about the size of a small kitchen, lived a hair salon.


Last Saturday it was jam-packed full of women waiting for their chance with the hairdresser. Most of them teenagers, waiting to get their hair styled for their prom.






As I mentioned in my last post, for the first time in this small Mississippi town, the highschool was having their first integrated prom.

So, even though they went to different hair salons, the white students were also getting ready. They same way. With hair salons and car washes.




More to come tomorrow to see portraits of the kids in front of their houses, before they headed off to this historical event…
