Order Of Myths, And Prom Night In MississippiTuesday, January 20, 2009
The Order of Myths came out on DVD last week, so I had Netflix send it over:
In 1997, Academy Award–winning actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for the senior prom at Charleston High School in Mississippi under one condition: the prom had to be racially integrated. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Freeman offered again. This time the school board accepted, and history was made.
