6:00 PM Black Cinema Series - Prom Night in Mississippi In a 1991 interview, director Spike Lee said, "I don't think my films are going to get rid of racism or prejudice. I think the best thing my films can do is provoke discussion." To celebrate Black History Month, the Humanities Center presents a series of weekly film screenings. Introduced by faculty members from various departments, the films span decades, beginning in the 1970s and ending with contemporary cinema. Following each screening is a brief discussion of the films, the issues that they raise and their lasting significance.

Prom Night in Mississippi is a 2009 Canadian-American documentary film written and directed by Paul Saltzman. The documentary follows a group of Charleston High School high school seniors in Charleston, Mississippi as they prepare for their senior prom, the first racially integrated prom in Charleston history.
