US school holds first integrated prom

One school in Georgia has until now had separate end-of-term dance parties for African Americans and whites.

Almost 60 years after the US Supreme Court desegregated public schools, one high school has only just had its first integrated prom.

The traditional end-of-term dance party – held in almost every US school as the semester draws to a close – was for the first time attended by both black and white students in the school in Rochelle, in the state of Georgia.
