"For One Night" is a gripping Lifetime movie based on the true story of student Gerica Mccrary (also spelled Mcrary) and the case of the racially segregated prom. The movie debuted in 2006 on Lifetime starring Raven-Symoné and Aisha Tyler. The student's real named was changed to Brianna Mccallister in the true story inspired film.
When African American student Brianna Mccalister finds out that her local high school will have two proms: one for Whites and one for Blacks, she is saddened. Determined to bring the student body together for only one prom, Brianna meets opposition from the school administration, the students and the city residents.
The true story that inspired "For One Night" happened in Georgia in 2002, when Gerica Mccrary sought to break the 30-year tradition of having racially segregated proms. The teen's story went national when a reporter heard about the story. Mccrary's story was covered in Georgia Magazine, as well as in CBS and ABC News as the teen who successfully integrated her school prom.
The movie still airs on Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network.
