James Meredith: Breaking the Barrier | Celebrating the 60th Anniversary

James Howard Meredith, American civil rights activist, writer, political adviser, and Air Force veteran, inspired by President John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, was the first African-American student admitted to the former racially segregated University of Mississippi. Today, we’re celebrating the diamond anniversary of his enrollment at Ole Miss with a few of the contributors from his newest book, “James Meredith: Breaking the Barrier” - Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Meredith’s 1962 enrollment at the U of M. The book, edited by Ole Miss journalism professor, Dr. Kathleen W. Wickham, features contributors: Dorothy Gilliam, the first African American reporter hired by the Washington Post and Sidna Brower Mitchell, former student-editor of The (Daily) Mississippian whose editorial calling for calm, received a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
