Important HBO Presentation

July 20, 2009
Prom Night In Mississippi
In 2008, Mississippi's Charleston High School held its first racially integrated prom.

Yes, you read the year right. 2008.

Producer/director Paul Saltzman was on hand to film the prom and the events leading up to it. His documentary, Prom Night in Mississippi, airs on HBO tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

I won't be near HBO tonight, Joseph, but they are good about showing things more than once so I'll be looking for it when I get home. Thanks for the heads-up!

What the what? 2008?

I don't have HBO, but I will look into this online to get the story.

Also don't have HBO...but will be looking for this on Netflix...yeah you betcha. many years ago did we get to the moon? When will we truly all get to each others' hearts?

Hope you will talk about it some more, after you've seen the program.

Peace and Love my brother...have missed you all...still experiencing some cable problems down here on the Key Pen. Lox
