The documentary depicts a town in transition
The first time photographer Gillian Laub traveled to Mount Vernon, Ga., in the fall of 2002, it was to document Montgomery County High School’s homecoming celebration. Set off by a local student’s letter to Spin magazine, Laub found a tradition long divided along racial lines. The school offered two ballots: one for a white homecoming queen and one for her black counterpart.
