Hard to believe?

It's so strange that there are still segregated proms. This NYT Magazine article is really interesting. Perhaps the author could have gone a little more in-depth, but for such a sensitive subject dealing with teenagers, she did a decent job. The audio slide show is really the most touching part of the piece, as you hear the actual voices of the kids involved in the situation.

If you haven't seen Prom Night in Mississippi you should get your hands on it. Documentary of a similar story right here in our home state!
