For One Night, based on actual events, follows a courageous young woman who dares to defy a decades-long tradition of segregated proms in the small Southern town. Briana McCallister (Raven-Symoné) is part of the prom planning committee. Although the students attend the same school, are members of the same teams and take part in the same clubs, the town has held segregated proms for more than 30 years. When the two proms cast their eyes on the same DJ this year, the students suggest combining the proms into one celebration. The older generations are shocked by the idea and racial tensions start to rise. Adding fuel to the decades old fire is the fact the school system gave a white student a slap on the wrist for an infraction while a black student who committed the same act was suspended. The fight leads to protests and brings Desiree Howard (Aisha Tyler) back to her home town to cover the store for her newspaper. The 2006 film is based on the story of Gerica McCrary who worked to integrate the Butler, GA, Taylor County High School prom after 31 years of segregation.moreless
