“Prom Night in Mississippi”
Did anyone see this at Sundance? I’m really curious to hear about it. It’s a documentary on the first integrated prom at a high school in Charleston, Mississippi that occured in 2008. Yes, that’s right, no typo, 2008! And only because Morgan Freeman offered to pay for it if they integrated the dance.
Tell me about it and let me know when I can see it, if you’re involved.
(Yes, I know, I’m just reading the Sunday Times on Tuesday morning, but I’ve been busy finishing my album mixes and writing a couple things that I’m really excited about!)
UPDATE: I got a note from a friend down in MS, and he told me that it’s actually two different high schools. Check it out the LA Times article anyway. It’s a really interesting discussion.
