BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -- The City of Birmingham is commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the civil rights movement.
Some of those who played a key role in the movement are making plans to go back in time.
The Greater Birmingham Historical 1963 Prom committee met at the East Ensley Library on Wednesday.
The group is planning the prom they never had.
In 1963, many high school students participated in the Children's Crusade.
They were arrested, and school leaders canceled their prom.
Now, students who attended Carver, Parker, Hayes, Western Olin and Ullman High Schools will get to enjoy a prom.
"We've been having this conversation for 50 years, and we finally decided it was time to do something if we were ever gonna do it," Earnestine Thomas said.
The 1963 prom will be held on May 17, 2013. Tickets for the event are $19.63 and can be purchased at Boutwell Auditorium.
