US high schoolers defy dance segregation

Group of students defy tradition by organising alternative school “prom” open to participants of all races.

It is prom season in the US once again, the dance that for many Americans marks the end of high school and the beginning of adulthood.

In the southern state of Georgia, however, it is a reminder that years of racial prejudice are not yet over.

Now, a group of students have come together to organise an integrated high school dance.
