Big Read Film: Prom Night in Mississippi

In 1997, Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for the senior prom at Charleston High School in Mississippi under one condition: the prom had to be racially integrated. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Freeman offered again. This time the school board accepted, and history was made. For more information, visit the film’s website.

Join us for an exclusive free screening of this award winning film tomorrow evening, October 8, at 7pm. The screening will take place in the Community Room of the Arts & Technology Building at FVCC.
