As the center of a media frenzy more than 10 years ago, Revonda stood up to the powerful principal of Randolph County High School in Wedowee, Alabama. Revonda contends the principal, Hulond Humphries, called her a mistake during an assembly when he attempted to cancel the junior-senior prom if interracial couples were to attend.

The principal denied the allegation. But Revonda, a biracial woman who asked whom should she take to the prom, remembers it clearly. She remembers the tears that fell from her eyes as her classmates watched. Ms. Bowen was 16-years-old when that happened. Now, she is 27 years old and recalls that time in her life.

It is the story of how she bounced back. Revonda Bowen is prepared, now, to talk about her mistakes. She has stopped crying. No Mistakes, No More Tears: The Revonda Bowen Story is her gift to all young people who must stand up for th
