Come together

In Reginald D Hunter's Songs Of The South, segregation was portrayed as a thing of the past - albeit a past that the Southern states haven't forgotten and are still coming to terms with. So it was with some surprise that I noted that these photos - which kicked up controversy and ultimately helped to end the prom night apartheid in Montgomery, Georgia - were taken as recently as 2009.
