Storyline

Their town always had two proms, one for the whites and one for the blacks. When both proms wanted the same DJ, Brianna McCallister suggested combining the proms, which would also mean more money for decorations. However, her idea shook the town up, especially after a white student was let off for the same offense that a black student was suspended for. Can the town overcome racial tensions and finally combine the two proms? Written by Anonymous

Excellent movie displaying a powerful message
6 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie displays such a powerful message that most people take for granted. In our nation we have a history of segregation, and for those of us who think it is all in our past - this movie shows us that it is not. The actual events took place in 2002. The movie makes us aware that racism is still around, and is something that is not good. One person can make a difference, and just knowing that gives hope that one day maybe people can look at other individuals and see them for who they are and not the color of our skin. I commend the real girl who took it upon herself to take action and try and change the world, at least one small town at a time in order to make it better. I would recommend that everyone should see this movie. It is very good!!!
