My time with Meredith

James Meredith telling me a little about his life’s story and continuing mission.

Saturday, I spent an hour or two with James Meredith, the first integrated black male at the University of Mississippi.  It was an amazing opportunity, an experience I will never forget. Though many see him as a civil rights leader, Meredith does not identify with this image. More of Meredith’s story will be in The Daily Mississippian and the Ole Miss Yearbook: http://www.thedmonline.com/article/james-meredith-opens

Meredith, friend Hiram Eastland and me in front of the Lyceum October 13, 2012. Meredith was greeted that day with thanks and kind words from several people, young and elderly.
