Georgia school holds first integrated prom

Posted: Updated:
WILCOX COUNTY, Ga. -

Students at Wilcox High School celebrated an integrated prom over the weekend for the first time in 40 years.

The prom was held in Crisp County next door to Wilcox.

It was organized by students and many vendors volunteered their services to make it a reality.

Students and even one member of the school board say it was worth all the work.

While the prom was a success, a "whites only" prom is still being planned by a group of students from Wilcox.
