Prom Prince and Princess Dancing at the Integrated Prom, 2011
From the Southern Rites series
“When I was a freshman I was so excited to be asked to my first prom, I didn’t realize it was strange that it was just for the white kids because that’s just the way it was always done here. The next year when it was integrated, the prom was so much more fun because we were with all of our friends. Now my eyes have been opened up and I can see the racism that existed. I am happy to be part of the generation who is making changes and doesn’t see color like our parents and grandparents did. Quanti was my close friend since we were in kindergarten and I was so happy our friends voted for us. I still see him sometimes when he comes back home from the military.” -Kayla, 2016
