It's that time of year for corsages and tuxedos around the Country, but in one Georgia county it was a historic celebration.

Wilson County High School students were finally able to attend their first integrated prom this weekend.

Before now, Blacks and whites attended separate dances organized by the students parents instead of the school district.

Students say they're excited they're finally able to celebrate together.
