Wilcox County High School in Rochelle Georgia about 50 miles outside of Macon will have its first integreted prom this year.
Yes you read that right. In 2013 Wilcox High will integrated its prom. But Homecoming will still be segregated.
There’s a white prom and then we have our integrated prom,” said student Keela Bloodworth.
Keela added that if any race other than Caucasian tries to attend the white prom, that student would probably be escorted off the premises by police. That was the case last year when a biracial student was turned away by police.
While having two separate dances, the school decided to elect only one pair for Homecoming king and queen for the first last year.
Quanesha Wallace won.
“I felt like there had to be a change because for me to be a black person and the king to be a white person, I felt like, you know why can’t we come together,” said Wallace. But nothing changed. Quanesha wasn’t invited to the white Homecoming dance. In fact, the pair took separate photos for the school yearbook.
We’re embarrassed, it’s embarrassing,” said student Stephanie Sinnot.
So the senior class is raising money to pay for the integrated prom, without the help of school officials to be held April 27
But, not everyone is fond of the idea. Some of the posters for the integrated prom that were hung up have been ripped to the ground.
I am INCENSED. If it had read this on Monday, I would have thought it was an April Fool’s joke.
If anyone out there wants to give these kids some help or some kind words of advice like “GET OUT OF THERE AFTER GRADUATION” they have a Facebook page HERE
