WELCOME TO THE 1970s: Group

WELCOME TO THE 1970s: Group Captain Lionel Mandrake finds a Georgia high school that has held its first(!) integrated prom:

Until this year, separate High School Proms were held for black and white pupils at Taylor County High School, Georgia, USA.

I think I am unsettled more by the “Some of my best friends are black” comments I read between the lines of the quotes.

Perhaps that’s just me.

Read the CNN report and make up your own mind.

In the early 1960s, comedian Mort Sahl once did a riff about a southern school sending exchange students to visit the 20th century. Looks like these kids are only just now arriving.
