    Almost 60 years after the US Supreme Court desegregated public schools, one high school has only just had its first integrated prom.

    The traditional end-of-term dance party - held in almost every US school as the semester draws to a close - was for the first time attended by both black and white students in the school in Rochelle, in the state of Georgia.
