Muslim HS girls in Hamtramck have a prom
Muslim girls at Hamtramck (MI) High School had a big problem. They wanted to participate in the school prom, but almost two-thirds of them could not, because of cultural or religious issues. So, they organized their own girls-only dance, complete with catered food, music, a pink fountain, henna tattoos and prayer rugs. They raised $2,500 from bake sales to pay for it themselves.
The school was cool with it. Even non-Muslim girls came. The venue was a former Knights of Columbus hall. And a hundred girls had a great time.
This is Real America. We should all be proud of what these kids did, and what is possible in these United States.
