Morgan Freeman.

Photo/APAt this years "Las Vegas Film Festival", there was a documentary entitled "Prom Night� Mississippi".

Charleston High School in Charleston MS.

held it's first integrated prom, thanks to Morgan Freeman who offered to pay for the prom...if it was integrated.

Charleston has had segregated proms for years.

Morgan, as most people would, found this unacceptable.

A meeting was held with Freeman and the school board and the arrangements were made.

And, the racism began.

This is a very good documentary, it is eye-opening and upsetting.

At some points the audience groans as white and black parents and teens talk about how they want their own prom.

Don't miss this chance to see "Prom Night Mississippi".

HBO Monday, check HBO listings for time.
