In Charleston, Mississippi, the local high school still has separate prom dances for their seniors: one for black students and one for white students. Morgan Freeman, a Charleston resident, makes the school an offer: If they can stage an integrated prom, he will pay for the whole thing. The school and students plan the prom and on April 19, 2008 the high school has its first integrated prom.
