Prior to the 1954 decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Supreme_Court_of_the_United_States) in Brown v. Board of Education (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Brown_v._Board_of_Education), most schools in the southern United States were racially segregated.[1] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-1954-prom1-0) The process of integration of schools was slow, and many schools did not become integrated until the late 1960s and early 1970s. In order to avoid having to hold an integrated prom, many high schools stopped sponsoring any prom, and private segregated proms were organized as a replacement.[2] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-wp88-ark1-1)[3] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-edweek1-2)[4] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-montctyprom-1-3)[5] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-ap-taylor1-4)[6] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-SPIN03-5) Sometimes a concern over interracial dating (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Interracial_marriage_in_the_United_States) was cited as the reason for not holding a single prom.[5] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-ap-taylor1-4) Other schools cited liability concerns as the reason for not sponsoring a prom.[7] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-eufaila1-6)
In addition to segregated proms, some schools have also elected black and white homecoming (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Homecoming) kings and queens, class officers, and even awarded separate black and white superlatives such as "Most Likely To Succeed."[3] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-edweek1-2)[6] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-SPIN03-5)[8] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-washpost1-7) School sponsored separate events, including separate homecoming queens or superlatives, have been deemed to violate federal law by the United States Department of Justice (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Justice).[9] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-edweek2-8)
In 1990, The New York Times (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/The_New_York_Times) reported that 10 counties in Georgia (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Georgia_(U.S._state)) were still holding segregated proms.[10] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-nyt-peach1-9) Though the practice has been reported to be on the decline, occasional press reports seem to show it persists in some rural locations.[11] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-dying1-10)[12] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-dying2-11)[13] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-peoplemag2003-12) Since 1987, media sources have reported on segregated proms being held in the U.S. states of Alabama (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Alabama),[7] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-eufaila1-6)[14] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-shafted65-13) Arkansas (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Arkansas),[2] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-wp88-ark1-1) Georgia (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Georgia_(U.S._state)),[4] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-montctyprom-1-3) Louisiana (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Louisiana),[3] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-edweek1-2) Mississippi (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Mississippi),[15] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-freeman1-14) and South Carolina (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/South_Carolina).[16] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-sc1-15)
When two separate proms are held for a school, generally the "black prom" is open to attendance by all students. Only the "white prom" is racially exclusive.[4] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-montctyprom-1-3)
School alumni at schools which held segregated proms sometimes hold segregated class reunions as well.[17] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-nc1-16)
[edit (http://www.wutang-corp.com/w/index.php?title=Segregated_prom&action=edit&section=2)] Prior to Brown

Even prior to integration in the South, there have been instances of segregated proms being held in integrated schools in the northern United States. In the late 1920s, for example, separate proms for black and whites are recorded as occurring at Frobel High School (http://www.wutang-corp.com/w/index.php?title=Frobel_High_School&action=edit&redlink=1) in Gary, Indiana (http://www.wutang-corp.com/wiki/Gary,_Indiana).[18] (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#cite_note-17)
