Integrated Prom

On April 4, 2013, in Biracial, by Honeysmoke

UPDATE: Author Farai Chideya is asking folks who support the integrated prom to suggest on Twitter entertainers who should consider playing the prom. Use #playintegratedprom for your suggestions. 

Two black students and two white students are organizing the first integrated prom at Wilcox County High School in Rochelle, Ga. A biracial student tried to attend the “white” prom last year, and the police were called.

The students say they are embarrassed they live in an area that has segregated proms. I hope these young people succeed in bringing their school into contemporary times. Check out the news story above.
