Photographer Ken McFarlane’s photography exhibit — titled “From the Root to the Fruit: Portraits of Black Fathers and their Children” — will be presented as part of Paul Robeson House Museum’s “Arts in the Parlor” fundraising series on Sunday, November 24 from 5:00pm until 6:00pm.

The museum is located at 4951 Walnut Street.

McFarlane is a West Philadelphia-based documentary and portrait photographer. He produces images that reflect the true nature of the community — its strengths, its beauty and its history.

His current project shines a positive light on the much-maligned Black male through a series of photographs of them and their children.

Tickets are $10, and can be purchased on Eventbrite at
