There's an excellent documentary that I believe is free on the webs (http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title...in_mississippi) called Prom Night in Misssissippi dealing with a similar town. The catch is that it's the town that Morgan Freeman grew up in and Freeman makes an offer to the students to bankroll their dream prom with the catch that it be integrated. The documentary very much paints it as the parents being the driving force behind the segregated proms, but it's definitely an interesting film to watch.
